The Role of Coaches

Coaches are masters-level interns in EMU’s MA in Counseling program, trained to help. Your coach will:

  • be a life coach and be in contact with you as often as you need
  • support and guide you academically and socially as you navigate college life
  • help you be on the lookout for adjustments and difficulties you may encounter
  • work with your academic advisor or residence hall director (RD) if needed
  • respect your confidentiality listen, encourage and respect you
  • help you connect with campus services (like counseling, ministry, tutoring, etc.)

Coaches can support and connect with you in all of these areas:

  • social
  • practical
  • physical
  • academic
  • emotional well being
  • spiritual

Coaches meet you where it works best… in the coffeehouse, taking a walk on campus, in the snack shop, etc. So CoachLink is really people connecting with people. You and your coach decide where and when to meet and how to communicate in between.
