I.D.E.A.S Center

This project aims to take the IDEAS Center, which currently exists only as a physical space at the University of Texas at Arlington, and create a digital component to make it available to all students. The IDEAS Center currently offers mentoring and tutoring services to sophomores, transfer students, veterans, and first-generation college students. Through this project, the services of the IDEAS Center would be available on weekends, during breaks, and after-hours. The goal of this collaboration is to encourage and facilitate a range of different help-seeking behaviors from students and provide broad support on everything from academics to financial issues to general life/counseling, though the focus of mainly of academics.
