The goal of the OMSE Check-Up is to empower diverse students by developing personalized approaches to their personal and academic lives during one-on-one holistic coaching sessions with an OMSE staff member. The resulting impact is an increase in student engagement, academic achievement, retention and graduation and a stronger connection to the University of Maryland campus community.
During each session, a staff members will:
- Develop a plan for success: Students and staff members meet as often as needed to set academic, personal, and professional goals with an emphasis on connecting students to the University of Maryland and establishing a solid foundation students can build upon in the years to come.
- Serve as a liaison between students and the University of Maryland: Staff members refer students to appropriate campus resources, groups, and activities based on their individual needs.
- Offer support: Staff members provide a friendly, supportive environment and address students’ individual needs by examining learning styles, work habits, identities, goals and current difficulties in order to help them to overcome any barriers to success.
