Academic Responsibility Coaches (ARCs)

ARCs are peer mentors who live in the residence halls to provide direct assistance and coaching to students with academic concerns.

These individuals are students trained to provide ongoing support to their peers through one-on-one contact, group tutoring, and programs related to academic skill building.

The goal of the ARCs is to assist students with their transition to college by introducing them to a variety of support strategies to equip them with the tools needed for academic and personal success at UCM.

These ARCs work cooperatively with the Office of Mentoring, Advocacy and Peer Support and University Housing to provide academic support and resource to students.
Objectives of the ARCs are to:

  1. Assist students with the transition to college and foster student success.
  2. Establish a positive, professional relationship with residents.
  3. Help residents develop successful academic skills.

Applications can be found on the MULES4HIRE website.
