Success Coaching

The approach of the Success Coach Model at Oberlin College is to aid students in leveraging their strengths to achieve self-defined success, and to help maximize their experience by providing holistic support and individualized guidance.

Through empowerment and agency, Success Coaches will co-create success plans with students based on their particular needs. As trained and certified professionals, Success Coaches are committed to cultivating a sense of belonging and safe space for all students at Oberlin College and Conservatory.

Success Coaching can include but is not limited to:

  • Life design and success strategies 
  • Self-discovery, self-awareness, and strengths
  • Goal setting and techniques
  • Time management and organizational skills 
  • Transitional stressors
  • Wellbeing and self-care tips
  • Social integration and co-curricular involvement 
  • Personal, social, and career goals
  • College resources 
  • and more!
