Academic Resource Center

Supporting Academic Excellence

Our approach is 100 percent student centered.  Our goal is to help students make meaningful interventions at every stage of the academic life cycle, understanding that academic support is an essential good for all learners.  We work to help students cultivate within themselves the skills necessary to manage competing demands, to deal productively with setbacks, and to approach with enthusiasm challenging situations both in and beyond the classroom.
