The Learning Resource Center (LRC) offers students a peer-supported environment to meet academic challenges, provide academic enrichment and identify research opportunities. Tutors, Supplemental Instruction Leaders, ExSEL Leaders and Research Mentors are model students trained to assist their peers in achieving academic and research success.  The main office is on the 10th floor of the W. E. B. Du Bois Library. The LRC has state of the art facilities for student support. All LRC services are free and open to all UMass students.
