ARC Mission

The Jesuit value of cura personalis, “care of the whole person,” represents the mission of Georgetown University. The Academic Resource Center embodies this value by guiding students in their intellectual, emotional and social development.

The Academic Resource Center provides students with academic strategies and individualized support needed for academic success and inclusion within the Georgetown community. The center offers the following support services:

  • Disability Support: Accommodations for students with disabilities that facilitate equity and access to services, programs, and facilities. The Academic Resource Center strives to meet the diverse needs of students with disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

  • Student-Athlete Support: Academic coaching to empower student-athletes to become student-centered learners that enhances their academic performance.

  • Academic Support: Assistance in study skills necessary for academic achievement through individual consultations, academic themed workshops, and foreign language tutoring services.

The Academic Resource Center strives to work collaboratively with the various departments in Student Affairs, academic deans’ offices, and other University offices to ensure that students receive the necessary and appropriate support to achieve their personal, academic, and professional goals.
