Coaching

Hub coaches work with you to identify your aspirations and co-create a plan for how to reach them.

However you interact—whether through a quick drop-in session, a more focused one-on-one appointment, or a small group workshop—coaches empower you to develop your professional identity. Together, you’ll design a strategy for fulfilling the goals and aspirations you have for yourself. 

Some of the topics you might explore are:

  • Figuring out your career interests
  • Goal setting
  • Funding options for internships
  • Internship preparation and search
  • Interview preparation
  • Graduate school
  • Volunteer, research, and other hands-on experience
  • Connecting with LSA alumni
  • Building your brand
  • Résumé, cover letter, personal statement, or portfolio
  • And more ....

Drop-in Hours

Stop by during drop-in hours to meet with a coach for 20 minutes or less for any of the topics above. These informal sessions are also a great place to start if you’re still figuring out what you want to work on. 

Monday–Thursday | 9–11:45 a.m. 
Drop-in hours are in the Weiser Family Collaboration Space on the first floor of the LSA Building (500 S. State St., across from UMMA).

The LSA Opportunity Hub is open to students all year round with the exception of holiday and season days, as observed by the University (please see list of Holidays and Season Days we are closed) and for other organizational reasons. During these closures, drop-in hours will not be available. Please check back here for real-time updates on office closures.

One-on-One Appointments

A 45-minute one-on-one appointment is a chance to go more in-depth with a coach, in-person or virtually. If there are specific materials you want to discuss, it’s helpful to have them ready on your laptop or in print.

Make an appointment by calling 734-763-4674, or visiting the Hub between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Small Group Coaching

Join your fellow LSA students in a group setting to explore how to develop a professional identity that fits who you are and where you want to be.
