The Academic Resilience Consortium (ARC) is a non-profit, collaborative membership organization which focuses on understanding and promoting academic resilience in higher education. It formed in 2014 when learning services colleagues from top higher educational institutions, including Brown, Harvard, and Stanford Universities, came together to share resources and support each other in understanding academic resilience. They decided to create the ARC website as a forum for collaborating. Colleagues from other higher education institutions expressed interest in participating in this effort and so they expanded membership to include all institutions of higher learning. Membership has grown to include more than 600 faculty, staff, and higher education students from 360 schools in 45 U.S. states and 17 countries.
