The Academic Resource Commons (ARC) is a community of learners, designed to empower Bates students to succeed and excel in their studies. ARC offers high-quality, student-focused peer tutoring and other support services in a welcoming, inclusive, environment. The ARC is a vital part of the academic experience at Bates College, complementing the classroom experience with a deeply social, collaborative, interactive learning environment that engages learners of every background in a conversation over shared challenges and student success.

For questions, please contact program director Daniel Sanford at dsanford@bates.edu, or give us a call at 786-6106. To access ARC services, see the calendar above or visit the Partners page to learn about programming offered through each unit.
