A unique component of the Caldwell Fellows experience is the personalized coaching each Fellow receives throughout their intensive semester in the Caldwell sophomore seminar. Coaches meet one-on-one with Fellows to develop resumes, personal plans, and leadership philosophies.

Caldwell coaches are certified executive coaches, community and business leaders, who donate their time to guide Fellows through the Caldwell journey of becoming a self-aware leader.

Upper-class students who serve as TAs for the Caldwell seminar receive next-level coaching as they develop their mentoring skills

Most significantly, Caldwell coaches are a further extension of the Caldwell family and emulate the values and generosity of spirit that typifies who we are. They are a community of people who care deeply about young adult development and invest a portion of their time to develop our Fellows.

The in-kind value of the timed donated annually by our executive coaches comes to approximately $8000.
