Goal Setting and Motivation

We guide students through concept mapping, vision boarding, and long/short-term goal setting. We ask students to uncover their “why.” Why are they at an institution of higher learning? Why are they seeking a higher education degree and more opportunities? Knowing their “why” can assist students in recognizing what motivates them and keeps them going. Students learn how to break down their bigger goals into smaller tasks.
