Staff to Student Success Coaching


The primary mission of the Peer Mentor Program is to ease the transition of new students to Northeast State Community College so that they may succeed personally, socially, and academically. The Northeast State Peer Mentoring Program facilitates student retention and enhances academic performance among Tennessee Promise and other new students through direct interaction between new students and Northeast State Honors and other successful student peers.

What is a Success Coach?

Success Coach is a professional staff member who provides a broad range of services to students to help them be successful in college.  They monitor a student's progression, provide connections to support services, and help students develop plans and strategies to be successful.  In some cases, they may provide academic advising and registration assistance.

What is a Peer Mentor?

A Peer Mentor is a successful current Northeast State student who interacts directly and regularly with other Northeast State students seeking personal, social, and academic support. Under the direction of the College’s Mentor Specialist, peer mentors provide advice and support.  They may also help students identify goals and connect them to services.
