The Kinesiology Peer Academic Coaching Program (KPAC) is a collaboration between the Kinesiology Undergraduate Society (KUS) and the School of Kinesiology. The program offers free academic support to Kinesiology students in first and second year core courses as well as Statistics (KIN 371).
We provide academic support through 1-on-1 academic coaching sessions during daily drop-in hours, facilitation of group study opportunities, exam preparation and study method workshops, and fun and social Kinesthetic Learning Events. Our coaches are senior Kinesiology student volunteers who are committed to providing a quality and supportive program while developing their own skills and experience in academic coaching and building upon their own knowledge in core Kinesiology subject areas.
