AmeriCorps College Completion Coaches

The College Completion Coaches serving at Terra State serve in a near-peer capacity to help students overcome barriers to the successful completion of their math or English developmental coursework. With that goal in mind, a Coach may offer assistance in identifying barriers and addressing problem areas, offering referral services both on and off campus, or serving in a mentoring capacity.  

We all face barriers to our success; it can be hard to focus or remain focused when we are distracted. Unfortunately, we do not always know the best or most effective way to overcome those barriers. As College Completion Coaches, it is our goal to bridge the gaps our students encounter. We may offer direction in the way of campus resources or we may need to address off-campus issues to create a better learning atmosphere on campus.  

E-mail coaches@terra.edu or call 419-559-2109 to schedule an appointment with a coach today!
