In addition, peer Academic Success coaches also assist with CAE outreach. A student may receive a phone call or email from a peer coach for various reasons from contacting them if they are struggling in a class and have received an academic alert, having a low midterm grade, or having not registered for next semester classes. These calls are to ensure that students know of all of the resources available to them.
