Academic Resource Center
At the Academic Resource Center, academic coaches work with students to help them bring out their academic best. Through one-on-one sessions, accountability groups and hours, and group workshops, academic coaches introduce students to techniques for managing time, reading strategically, studying effectively, building better habits, and much more. They also assist students with prioritizing goals, creating accountability structures, customizing their learning environment, connecting with instructional staff, and finding the resources they need.
Peer tutoring provides students with an opportunity to learn from the diversity of their peers and to engage with one another outside the classroom. When students need help with a specific course, the ARC connects them to a network of trained peer tutors who meet with students individually or in small groups. Peer tutors support students' learning by reviewing materials from class and working through critical concepts and areas of confusion. English language conversation partners provide conversational practice for students who are non-native English speakers.
