Upcoming Webinar

Academic Resilience: A “What Works” Showcase

March 25 – March 26, 2021
11:00am – 5:00 pm (Eastern)

This webinar highlights current work of ARC members promoting academic resilience throughout our institutions of higher education, in teaching and advising, student affairs, and health/wellness initiatives.

Attendees will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of inspiring and effective initiatives, meet leading thinkers and practitioners, and engage with their community of peers.

The format of the event is designed to provide a broad overview and sampling of student success initiatives, rather than a deep dive into specific programs or issues.  Participants are warmly invited to follow up with one another after the conference for further exploration and consultation.

Non-ARC individuals may register for General Admission: $225.00
ARC Members may register at no cost.

Dear ARC Friends and Colleagues,

All of us have been affected, personally and professionally, by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic as well as the heightened awareness and activism emerging in the US and around the world in response to incidents of racism and violence. These are times that call for extraordinary resilience on the part of our students, ourselves, our institutions, and our society.

The Academic Resilience Consortium stands with Black Lives Matter to oppose systemic racism, to grieve for victims of racial violence and police brutality, and to achieve justice and equity.

We send you courage and hope as we all navigate these waters, engage our resilience, and create new ways to care for ourselves and others.

- Abigail, Adina, Myrna, and Nic
ARC Steering Committee
