Step UP!


Students who volunteer to participate in Step UP are paired with a faculty or staff coach who provides one-on-one support for managing the challenges of college.  There are no agendas or set goals; instead, students are encouraged to question, share, and explore ideas with a caring listener. Step-Up students usually meet with their coach for one hour, once a week.


  • “I love having uninterrupted time with my coach.”
  • “My coach listens and helps me work through problems.”
  • “I have learned how to stand up for myself.”
  • “I like the close relationship I have with my coach.”
  • “I can talk to my coach about anything.”
  • “I feel like my coach knows what I am going through.”
  • “I have learned how to talk to my teachers.”
  • “I feel more connected to HCC.”
