COVID-19 Update: While the University is closed, Academic Skills will not be available for team or group study hours.
Housed within Academic Skills, the goal of the USI Athletic Peer Coach Program is to assist USI student-athletes both academically and with the overall adjustment to college life. All student-athletes are eligible to participate. Participants are assisted by fellow student-athletes who have been selected to serve as peer coaches. These peer coaches are positive role models, both athletically and academically.
The program can have a number of benefits for student-athletes who participate in it:
All athletic peer coaches complete an extensive training program led by the Academic Skills staff and are supervised by Learning Specialist Darrin Sorrells.
