Update: ARC Supports and Services Remain Available

March 19, 2020

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) is available to support faculty and students as we move all St. Louis and US Metro classes – as well as classes at many of our non-US campuses – online. Due to the need to continue to cut down on person-to-person interactions, the physical Academic Resource Center (ARC) is closing until it is safe to return to normal operations. While the physical ARC is closed, the core academic support resources and services – academic counseling, ADA services, assistive technology assistance, tutoring, and writing – remain available to faculty and students.
