Academic Resource Coaches (ARCs)

Students supporting students


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


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


Ask an ARC Tables



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


All ARCs are available during certain drop-in hours for academic consultation.
