R.I.S.E. Peer Academic Coaching Program

The R.I.S.E. (Resources and Initiatives for Student Excellence) Program is a peer academic coaching program at Winthrop University.  This program pairs participants or "mentees" with an upperclassmen known as a Peer Academic Coach or PAC.  The PAC and mentee meet weekly to discuss academic success strategies such as study skills, campus resources, and goal setting.

In addition to meeting weekly with their PAC, mentees are expected to attend three R.I.S.E. workshops.  These workshops are held once a month and discuss various topics such as financial literacy and internship preparation.

The program is designed for students that are:

  • Freshman or transfer students that are entering their second semester at Winthrop;
  • Have a cumulative GPA of a 2.8 or lower; and
  • Interested in receiving extra support to increase their GPA.
