Academic Resource 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. In partnership with the Community Adivsors, ARCs are involved in dorm life through bulletin boards and programs.

In addition to their presence in the residence halls, ARCs are available during their office hours in the Learning Commons on the 3rd floor of the James C. Kirkpatrick Library. These office hours vary by semester, and will be posted here and in the Learning Commons at the beginning of each semester.
