The Learning Resource Center (LRC) serves as the central academic support unit for University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass Amherst) undergraduate students. Our academic support programs are for all undergraduate students, not just those who are struggling academically. Peer Tutors, Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leaders, and ExSEL Leaders are model students trained to assist their peers in achieving academic success. The entire staff of the LRC welcomes you to the 10th floor of the W.E.B. Du Bois Library, and encourages you to take advantage of our services.

Office of Undergraduate Research Studies
Du Bois Library, 10th Floor


The Office of Undergraduate Research & Studies (OURS) is a branch of the Learning Resource Center and is a resource for all undergraduates in all majors and at all stages of experience. OURS helps students find research and scholarly opportunities on and off campus, throughout the year. Students are also supported in preparing for and navigating the application process.
