Academic Resource Coaches (ARCs)

ARCs are peer coaches who live in residence halls, apartments, or off-campus, and provide direct assistance and coaching to students with academic concerns. These individuals are undergraduate 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, Residence Hall ARCs are involved in dorm life through bulletin boards and programs, as well as their scheduled available hours in their residence halls.


Both Commuter ARCs (those who live in campus apartments or off-campus) and Residence Hall ARCs are available during certain hours in the James C. Kirkpatrick Library. These office hours vary by semester, and will be posted here and in the Learning Commons (3rd floor of the JCK Library) near the beginning of each semester.


To request support from an ARC, just fill out the form on the MAPS homepage, or call 660-543-4156.
