Academic Resource Center

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) is a combined writing, tutoring, and academic technology space located on the ground floor of the Learning and Mentoring Center. ARC manages Blackboard™, and includes the Writing Lab and the iSpace (interactive teaching and tutoring room).  It is a great place to find the assistance, support, and encouragement you need to succeed in your university studies.

The Center houses four peer-tutoring programs: the ARC Link Tutors, the ARC Tech/Media Tutors, the AUP Writing Lab and a new drop-in Math Clinic. All services are free-of-charge for AUP students.

We encourage you to drop in, ask questions, get help with your coursework, find support for your projects, and meet the staff and tutors. For updates on ARC activities, tutoring schedules and bios of our peer tutors, please check out our Facebook page. We hope you will visit soon and let us know how we can help you!
