Who is ARC?



We are Bates students who connect you with the resources available to help you achieve academic success.  We are Peer Tutors, Resource Representatives, Technical Writing Assistants, Peer Assisted Learning Leaders, Peer Writing & Speaking Assistants, and Student Managers.


Peer Tutors

We provide both individual one-on-one support in ARC, as well as running drop-in and group sessions.

Resource Representatives

We help you identify what resources are available to you, and how to access them.  You’ll find us at the front desk of both ARC and the Writing Center.

Peer Assisted Learning Leaders

We attend the section of the class we are supporting and facilitate learning in out-of-class sessions using strategies that build readiness and comprehension in traditionally difficult courses.
