Academic Resource Center

Mission Statement

The Academic Resource Center of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth endeavors to support achievement of academic goals belonging to a variety of groups; students, faculty members and administrators, which are inherent to the educational mission of the University. The ARC bolsters students’ efforts to meet the demands of the curriculum contributing to increased retention by focusing on academic needs and offering peer-tutoring services in a caring and supportive environment. The ARC helps faculty members address the curriculum by providing feedback on common student misconceptions addressed while tutoring their students, conducting pre-exam review sessions and, when requested, assisting faculty in proctoring exams given in crowded classrooms.

The Academic Resource Center also administers a United States Department of Education Student Support Services Program. The foundation of this ARC/SSS program is the legislative demand that we “foster an improved institutional climate” for a portion of our high-risk population. Program funding mandates intrusive and exclusive services to 270 students, each of whom must be federally eligible due to their status as Low Income and/or First Generation college students at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. We fulfill this goal by providing tutoring, mentoring, advising and/or other academic support services as needed.

Hours

The tutoring centers are open weekdays until early evening for the convenience of day and evening students.
