Hi, Colleen.

I found that hiring and training respected athletes that are good students as Academic Coaches works well. Then, they can monitor the study table and work with students at the study table, work one/one with athletes as needed, and facilitate study tables in hotels when they are on the road.

Subject: Learning Centers and Student Athletes
 

Hello list serv friends,

 

I am interested in hearing from learning center directors who have collaborated with their athletics department and what types of collaborative opportunities have worked well. My office has been approached with the idea of offering required “study hall” in our learning center space. If you have done something similar, what were the successes as well as challenges? The concept of a study hall seems to be on the right track, but I am hoping to get some ideas brewing that would more actively engage the student athletes.

 

Many thanks!

 

Colleen
