COVID Statement

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all ARC services were remote during the 2020-21 academic year. Full in-person service will resume in fall 2021.

Students looking for tutoring during summer session should speak with their instructor about the SmartThinking tool, provided by the Division of Graduate and Continuing Education.

Students will be able to request to be assigned to work with a peer tutor for the duration of the fall semester starting on Wednesday, September 8, 2021. A link to the tutor request form will be posted here at that time. Additional information will also be available at our front desk.

Students looking to hone their study skills, learning strategies, organization, or planning should contact arcstudent@muhlenberg.edu to set up an initial Zoom consultation with a member of the professional staff.

Prospective students and their families are encouraged to review the ARC brochure or contact David Hallowell, Assistant Dean for Academic Life, for additional information at davidhallowell@muhlenberg.edu.

Other questions regarding the ARC or any of our services may be directed to arcstudent@muhlenberg.edu.

Mission Statement

In alignment with the mission, vision, and values of Muhlenberg College, the Academic Resource Center works to provide support for students’ academic transition, engagement, integration, growth and achievement through a holistic, community-based approach. Our services and practices are rooted in a humanistic model, informed by current research in education, psychology, and neuroscience.

In helping students to successfully navigate the rigors of a competitive academic environment and become lifelong learners, we provide opportunities to:

  • Clarify and strengthen commitment to educational pursuits;
  • Improve organization and planning skills;
  • Develop efficient, effective, and strategic approaches to learning;
  • Cultivate critical thinking and problem solving;
  • Acquire knowledge and skills important to the practice of their discipline;
  • Develop and demonstrate leadership abilities;
  • Engage in a diverse and mutually supportive academic community.

Because the developmental needs of students change and evolve during their time at Muhlenberg, the Academic Resource Center works closely with faculty and staff to identify, connect with, and support students who may benefit from the culture of care that is embodied in the mission of our department.
