PACE Success Coaching

Persistence from Application to Completion in Education


What is PACE Success Coaching? Watch this video!



The PACE Success Coaches support and inspire students to engage in self-discovery, mitigate barriers, persist from application to completion, and become lifelong learners and global citizens.


All Otters set their own PACE for success.

In pursuit of the PACE Success Coaching vision, PACE coaches will provide academic support, college and community resources that:

  • Students actively seek, engage, and recommend to peers.
  • ACC faculty and staff recommend and refer to students as the starting option for support.
  • PACE Coaches are continually developing and learning to meet the needs of students.
  • ACC at large regards as essential  for student success at the college.

PACE Values

As PACE Success Coaches, we value:

Persistence– We encourage students to continue in their path to success in spite of difficulty or adversity.

Application– From the time the student completes the action of applying to the college, success coaches connect with students to proactively support student success

Completion– Success coaches use predictive analytics to drive retention and move the retention needle.

Education– Coaches will facilitate the learning of skills, habits, and personal development to propel students to become responsible consumers of their academic journey.
