Academic Coaching

What is Academic Coaching?

Academic coaching is a service open to all Regis students where they can meet with professional staff in the Learning Commons to ask questions, get connected to services on campus, or seek support tailored to their individual learning needs. The Regis academic coaching model is anchored in current research from the fields of neuroscience, psychology, and learning. Since learning is ongoing throughout life, we follow a holistic model of academic coaching, emphasizing with students the importance of setting and working towards individual goals. We support students as they develop learning strategies that will help them meet their goals.

How do I find an Academic Coach?

Stop in and see us on the second floor of the library. We offer academic coaching to all students who are interested in making the most of their time at Regis and working on becoming their best selves. All incoming freshmen and transfer students are assigned a coach who is available to meet with them beginning on the first day they arrive at Regis. Upperclassmen and graduate students are also invited to meet with our academic coaches.

Are there different types of academic coaching?

Our coaches meet with students for many reasons.  Some questions are answered quickly in one of our drop-by-and-say-hi sessions, while others may be better answered in an individual meeting or a small group setting. We offer learning communities for students to connect with peers and an academic coach, in order to explore the college experience and problem-solve barriers related to college success. Coaches also offer small group meetings and workshop series on topics related to specific learning strategies and academic content areas.

How do students connect with an Academic Coach?

Students can email Cindy Bushey at, or they can visit the Learning Commons on the second floor of the Library to speak with a staff member.
