The mission of the Center for Academic Resources (CFAR) is to assist undergraduate students in achieving their academic potential and in maximizing their educational experience at the University of New Hampshire. We see learning as an active process and teach students the skills to engage fully with that process in pursuit of their academic goals and objectives. We ascribe to a growth mindset in learning; education isn’t given or inherent, it is achieved. Through academic coaching, personal guidance, and access to campus resources, CFAR has succesfully helped thousands of students realize thier academic ambitions.
