Advising

Academic Resource Center

Opening in August 2019, the Academic Resource Center (ARC) at Harvard University supports Harvard’s students in developing reading strategies, time management skills, and metacognitive approaches to learning. Students will have access to consultations, workshops, academic coaching, peer tutoring, and skills-based resources.
