About

As part of the Center for Diversity and Enrichment (CDE), Campus Outreach Services (COS) provides one-on-one academic coaching and facilitates academic and cultural services geared toward supporting:

  • Students with disabilities
  • Students with marginalized racial/ethnic identities
  • First-generation college students
  • Low-income students
  • LGBTQ+ students

Interested in meeting with an Academic Coach? You can schedule an appointment in three ways:

  1. To request an individual appointment, please email cde@uiowa.edu. TRIO SSS students, please email cde@uiowa.edu if you’d like to meet with an Academic Coach in COS.
     
  2. If you are an Advantage Iowa scholar, but not a TRIO SSS student, you should have received an email with information on signing up for a group meeting with your assigned coach using SignUpGenius. If you can't find that email, please send an email to cde@uiowa.edu, and they can help you connect with your coach.
     
  3. If you've already participated in a group meeting with your assigned coach, feel free to email them about having an additional, individual meeting--and if you'd rather meet with someone else, you can email cde@uiowa.edu.

Under normal circumstances, the Academic Coaches meet with students in scheduled appointments or walk-in meetings. Due to COVID-19, we are not currently taking any in-person appointments, and walk-in appointments are therefore unavailable.
