Programs in Support
Academic coaches are support staff trained in evidence-based strategies to facilitate
each session. The academic coach works to empower the student towards positive behavior
change and improved academic performance. Students typically meet with an academic
coach weekly throughout the duration of the semester by an appointment-based system.
The goal of coaching is to promote an individual's self-efficacy and confidence during
their time at Florida A&M University. Coaching is provided year-round, including
the summer term at NO cost. Click here to access the website.
The Center for Disability Access and Resources provide services and academic accommodations
for students of all backgrounds on campus with documented physical, psychological
and learning disabilities. Not only do we advocate for our participants, but we encourage
them to become their own advocates as well. Click here to access the website.
The Victim Advocate Program serves as a confidential resource and support service
for anyone in the University community who has been a victim of a crime. This includes
students and employees who were victimized at any time and at any location, as well
as any other person victimized by a member of the FAMU community. Victimizations include
sexual battery, sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, harassment, intimate
partner violence, hate crimes, loss of a loved one to homicide, etc. Click here to access the website.
We provide academic support in various subject areas at no cost to students. We offer
subject-specific one-on-one tutorial sessions as well as group study sessions. Working
closely with department heads and professorial faculty allows the center coordinators
to train tutors to tailor sessions to lesson plans and syllabi. Find out how to schedule
a 1-on-1 session with a tutor here. Click here to access the website.
Our mission is to talk to you, and above all to listen. Tell us about yourself and
your writing, about the project in hand, and how you would like us to help. We will
give you and your work our care and attention; we will figure out together a response
that fits; we will work on how you can best express yourself in your schoolwork and
beyond. Click here to access the website.
