Red River College is a leader in applied learning and innovation. Our talented team of employees is passionate about education, innovation and student success. We offer competitive salaries, extensive benefits, and the opportunity for personal and professional growth in a rewarding career.

Academic Student Success Coaches provide students with academic success tutoring, guidance and an accountability structure as they work through their programs. The activities are more interventionist in nature, requiring students to self-identify areas of need in order to create a strategic learning plan. Academic Student Success Coaches support and hold students accountable as they work to better their study, content, time management or life skills as needed for success.
