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 dorm 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.


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