A professional coaching program has been successful in reducing the dropout rates at four Montana public colleges — including Montana State University-Northern — statistics that were released Tuesday show.
The coaching is provided through the RevUp Montana Consortium, a four-year federally funded pilot program, that works with nine colleges throughout Montana to equip students with training for high-wage jobs in industries such as manufacturing, energy and diesel where employers are looking for skilled workers.
Since 2014, RevUp has partnered with InsideTrack, a San Francisco vendor, and provided more than a 1,000 students in four state colleges with professional success coaches. In a news release, RevUp officials predict that by December, more than 2,000 students will receive those services.
