Who are Peer Academic Success Coaches?

Peer Academic Success Coaches (PASCs) are student leaders, within the Academic Success and Tutoring Center, who are passionate about helping peers develop the skills necessary to become successful students. 

Meet the PASCs

What do Peer Academic Success Coaches do?

PASCs are trained to identify barriers to academic success and to assist students in creating action plans for overcoming those challenges.  By working one-on-one with students in the program, PASCs build relationships with their peers and coach them on topics such as time management skills, study habits, goals-setting, test-taking skills, and learning styles.  In addition, PASCs participate in on-going interactive training and development, making them an integral resource to program participants, the ASTC, and Stony Brook University as a whole.
