For Entering Students
Academic Resource Center for Students
The Academic Resource Center for Students (ARC) at MSPP offers assistance to graduate students experiencing difficulty with writing and other academic tasks. Anyone who experiences difficulty with writing and other academic tasks (e.g. organization of language and thought; efficient study methods) can receive assistance through the ARC. Students who have a diagnosed disability and require reasonable accommodations (e.g., extended time and/or a distraction-free space for an in-class exam) must contact Assistant Dean, Jane Adelizzi prior to receiving accommodations specific to their disability. Dr. Adelizzi is the coordinator of the ARC, and she can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org, and will provide you with the information you need about registering for assistance at the ARC.
The scope of assistance available to students at the ARC includes:
- General editing
- Organization of language and thought in written assignments
- Lexical proficiency (learning and using the language/meaning of a course, program, or profession)
- Efficient reading and study methods
- Greater understanding of executive functioning skills in relation to academic success (e.g., meeting deadlines, planning, organizing, initiating & sustaining tasks)
- Rehearsals for classroom presentations.
