SESSION DESCRIPTION: In a post-pandemic, multicultural, pluralistic student population, academic coaching is a practice that supports retention and student success. Academic coaching programs are founded on the belief that success is available to all. But does coaching support students as they are or as the system requires them to be? Through a discussion-style presentation, coaches will gain an understanding of: 1) Culturally sustaining, relevant, and responsive pedagogies, 2) How to assess, if any, which pedagogies are at work in their current coaching framework or practices, 3) Understanding techniques to incorporate culturally relevant practices into the current coaching framework.
