Academic Resource Center

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) is a combined writing, tutoring, and academic technology space located on the fourth floor of the Quai d’Orsay Learning Commons.  ARC manages the Blackboard™ online learning platform, and houses several peer-tutoring programs for students.  These include the AUP Writing Lab, the ARC-Link subject tutors, the Math Clinic, and the Tech/Media tutors. We are here to help you succeed in your university studies, and all services are free-of-charge for AUP students.

We encourage you to visit our learning spaces, ask questions, get help with your coursework, and connect with our staff and tutors.
