Academic Resource Coaches (ARCs)

ARCs are peer mentors who live in residence halls, apartments, or off-campus, and 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 who live in the residence halls are involved in dorm life through bulletin boards and programs, as well as their scheduled available hours.

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.
