UCLA GRIT Coaching Program

COVID-19 Related Update (December 3, 2020)

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the UCLA campus has reduced operations and is closed to the general public. At this time, the UCLA GRIT Coaching Program is not operating for the 2020-21 academic year. Please visit the UCLA RISE Center website for current and accessible virtual programming to support student holistic success and positive well-being.

GRIT stands for guidance, resilience, integrity, and transformation. It is through these four core values that guide our individualized work with UCLA students. We are committed to enhancing students’ UCLA experiences through one-on-one peer coaching.

Both undergraduate and graduate students can enroll at any time during the academic year to receive one-on-one support from trained peer coaches. Topics of focus during individualized coaching sessions include stress/time management, effective communication skills, meditation/mindfulness, cultural humility, goal setting, comprehensive campus resource referrals and much more! Our goal is to empower students to discover their true thriving potential and ultimately give back to the greater UCLA campus community. Explore our site for more info!
