At the ARC students may receive support, individually and in groups, in a relaxed environment, where personal requests may be met. The ARC has a professional mathematics tutor available every day. In addition there are peer tutors and Supplemental Instruction leaders for many subjects. Students are encouraged to look for the SI leaders who may be assigned to their courses, and take advantage of this opportunity to enhance their academic success.
At the Academic Resource Center, emphasis is put on learning and the gaining of independence. Tutors and SI leaders offer guidance and explain principles that students can put into practice. It is important for students who seek assistance to understand that by doing so they are making a commitment both to themselves and the ARC staff.
