A Message from the ARC Directors
The Academic Resilience Consortium (ARC) is a collaborative community dedicated to promoting academic resilience in higher education, to help college students learn, grow, and reach their goals. The faculty, staff, and students of the ARC represent the wide range of campus functions in higher education, including learning services, counseling services, advising programs, academic departments, campus life, and bridge programs, among others.
The ARC itself is a learning community. We are all in this work together: improving higher education, advancing our respective fields, and promoting college student success. As your ARC co-directors, we welcome your participation, questions, and feedback, and look forward to working and learning with you.
