UCF’s PeerKnights Coaching Program is an innovative peer-to-peer initiative that provides academic and co-curricular coaching to UCF students. The program’s goal is to empower students to be strong academically as they integrate into the campus community through a coordinated care network of peer coaches and professionals. The coaching program supports student retention and success.
