What is Coyotes Achieve? 

Coyotes Achieve is aimed at closing equity gaps and promoting student success for students from historically marginalized backgrounds. Students who participate in Coyotes Achieve work with Academic Coaches, create academic goals, and gain a sense of belonging to the CSUSB campus community.  Events and activities hosted by the Coyotes Achieve team include a wide variety of topics from academic success to health and wellbeing. Academic Coaches create meaningful relationships with participating students by regular communication, with in-person and virtual meetings both at the San Bernardino and Palm Desert campuses. 

Students will have the opportunity to talk through their college experiences, gain access to campus resources, develop goal setting and time management skills, ask questions, engage in non-academic activities, and much more with peers who have successfully navigated their first year of college.

How can I prepare to make the most out of my 30 minutes with my Academic Coach?

How can I get to know other Coyotes Achieve students?
