Student Development

Peer Success Program

The Peer Success Program matches you with a peer coach for regular (weekly or biweekly) meetings that encourage, give direction, and help you navigate Wright State successfully. Our peer coaches focus on holistic well-being by providing support, problem-solving, and goal-setting tips that assist you in reaching your educational goals. The Peer Success Program seeks to:

  • Increase a sense of belonging with a built-in peer support system
  • Initiate early intervention strategies as needed.
  • Provide an additional touchpoint via weekly follow up
  • Identify barriers prohibiting student success
  • Allow students to see their peers model excellence
  • Assist in the transition between high school and university life
  • Promote healthy classroom behaviors
