Located in the Office of Student Success- 122 White Hall 

The Academic Coaching Experts (ACE's) are professional staff members of the Office of Student Success. The ACE's assist students with the transition process to Utica College. This is achieved through a series of intentional interventions with first year students. Throughout the year, ACE's serve as an academic liaison between students and the academic areas across the campus.

ACE's also: 
  • create and foster a proactive culture among their first-year students
  • assist with programs designed to help students adjust to academic and social life 
  • act as a liaison by making referrals to other UC offices and academic schools across campus
