About Us

DEI Value Statement

At Academic Assistance and Tutoring Centers, we acknowledge, embrace, and value the differing perspectives and identities within the campus community. As a department, we recognize the injustices in education that are rooted in historical and present institutional inequities that impact our students. As such, we are committed to providing accessible academic services with an understanding that students come from different backgrounds with varying levels of access to opportunities and resources. Thus, AATC strives to create welcoming and inclusive working environments for students and staff that support learning and growth academically, personally, and professionally. We do so by meeting students and staff where they are and considering their unique lived experience. In these ways, we honor and respect everyone at UC Davis and live out the Principles of Community.

Core Purpose

Academic Assistance and Tutoring Centers (AATC) exist to help undergraduate students thrive at UC Davis and beyond. We provide an inclusive and interactive environment where students participate in reinforcing and retaining knowledge in multi-disciplinary writing, math, and science+ through co-curricular academic services provided by both professional staff and peer tutors. We strive to support students in developing the academic competence and confidence that will empower them to succeed at UC Davis.
