Mission Statement

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) empowers all State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota students to achieve their personal potential for learning and academic success. The core mission of the ARC is to help students become independent and active learners, thereby achieving academic improvement consistent with their values, interests, and abilities. The ARC serves as a means to help under-prepared students to prepare, prepared students to advance, and advanced students to excel! 

The ARC does this by providing high-quality instructional support that is appropriate to an academically diverse population. This includes One-on-One Tutoring for Math and Science; Writing Conferences; Developmental Skills Labs for Mathematics and Content-specific Workshops and Test Reviews. The ARC also offers a comfortable study atmosphere where students can work on their own, meet with their classmates or professors, and utilize the lab computers, study rooms, and other resources -- all with the support of on demand ARC tutoring.
