Academic Role Models Program

College of St. Scholastica (MN)

The ARM (Academic Role Models) program at The College of St. Scholastica is designed to increase learning opportunities and progress for students who live in the college's on-campus residence halls and apartments.

Peers who are junior and senior level, and have outstanding academic success are hired, trained and placed on wings of the housing units. These ARM students provide programs, one-on-one tutoring, incentives, and study tables for their peer students. The program is designed to engage students in group and active learning in their living environment.

The college plans to track the students who participate with the ARM students by their GPA and on-time progress to graduation. The program began two years ago.
