What is Academic Resource Center Coaching?

Academic Resource Center Coaching (ARC-C)

ARC-C sessions are designed to support student learning through peer-assisted study sessions.

These sessions are facilitated by students who have been previously successful in the course. SI sessions

  • integrate how-to-learn with what-to-learn;
  • incorporate study skills;
  • provide peer-support;
  • reinforce classroom instruction; and
  • are free and informal.

The informal setting provides a forum for students to interact with other students, discussing the content, and constructing a framework of strategies for academic success.

Academic Resource Center-Coaching has been successful in increasing GPA for students who attend regular sessions and exist in a variety of forms in universities across the country. Research supports the success of academic coaching programs in helping students develop academic skills to become independent learners.
