Posted August 19th, 2020 at 4:18pm

Jessie Ball duPont fund has graciously awarded Wesley College’s Student Success & Retention Center $5,000 in grant funding to increase Academic Coaching Services offered to students. These services are for students enrolled in the Academic Strategies for Excellence (AS198) and Academic Success 2.0 (AS098) courses, which assist first-year students in transitioning to college and students on academic probation during their second semester.

The grant fund will help Wesley increase the number of Academic Coaches from 4 to 12 and will triple the support offered to an estimated 150 students during the Academic Year 2020-2021.

During such challenging times like the Covid-19 pandemic, and with the challenges of navigating an unfamiliar system for first-year students, Academic Coaches provide the guidance needed for academic success.
