Academic Resource Coaches (ARCs)


Students supporting students


ARCs are undergraduate student peer coaches who are trained to help you with a variety of academic concerns through one-on-one meetings, group tutoring, and programs related to academic skill building. ARCs live in residence halls, apartments, and off-campus.


In partnership with the Community Advisors, Residence Hall ARCs are involved in residential life through bulletin boards and programs, as well as their scheduled available hours in their residence halls.


ARCs do both proactive outreach, including check-in and reminder emails throughout the semester and "Ask an ARC" tabling events, as well as reactive outreach, including assisting with the enrollment validation process, responding to academic alerts from instructors, and reaching out at Progress Report time.


Ask an ARC Tables



Watch for these tables at the beginning of each semester! ARCs will be available to help with directions, getting onto Blackboard, using MyCentral, understanding your syllabus, and general questions about academic resources on campus. 


Connect with an ARC:

  • click on an email address below and ask to make an appointment,
