About Page

LMWEP is a workplace education partnership at UMass Amherst offering quality, innovative training and education to the diverse employees/staff, including those with different linguistic and cultural backgrounds.


Our mission is to inspire and support innovative worker learning within the university and beyond. On campus, our goal is to empower UMass staff to learn new skills and gain confidence to improve their professional and personal lives.


We offer training and education opportunities to frontline workers – maintainers, trade workers, and secretaries to professional, technical and support staff. The courses range from basic computer skills, to specific applications to “next step” classes that develop professional interpersonal skills and valuable leadership; one-on-one sessions and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes.
