Good day, Engineering Advising Colleagues,

Hope that your quarter is going well so far!  I’m writing to let you know about a resource this term to support engineering undergraduate students: two Engineering Academic Success Coaches (ASCs) working within the College of Engineering’s Engineering Academic Center.  This is an academic year partnership with UW Academic Support Programs, and we are extremely fortunate to have Engineering ASCs Francisco and Toni as part of our team.

Engineering ASCs are able to assist other engineering undergraduates with academic success strategies, including:

  • Effective note-taking and study techniques

  • Time management

  • Goal setting

  • Recovering from a difficult assessment

Each coaching session is a 1 on 1 appointment for 30 minutes, either in person, or virtually.  The focus is on meeting students where they are in order to highlight achievable action steps.  Students can use one of the bulleted links below to schedule an appointment with Francisco or Toni.

Please share with students and instructors in your department. Thank you for your time, and feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions!
