The AARC has a long history of working with faculty members to support the institution’s high standards. As previous faculty members ourselves, AARC’s management team understands the importance of students developing these mentoring relationships. We like to say that we're No. 2 because the professor is always No. 1! We appreciate when faculty members refer students to us who are in need as well as students to serve as tutors.

We encourage you to bring students by the AARC to acquaint them with our services and our people! To arrange for a tour, submit an online AARC tour request. Can we offer your class a five minute introduction to the AARC? If you have a tutor assigned to your class, let them know. Otherwise, contact us to schedule a class visit!
