What is American Studies?

What is American Studies?

Come learn about the department from current majors, as they present "Research in Progress" as part of a student symposium for the course "AMST 468: Research Methods in American Culture“

Refreshments will be served

Students Only

BIG Initiative: Meet and help us evaluate implementation partners - Sierra-Ceda

Amherst faculty, staff and students are invited to attend a presentation by possible implementation partner Sierra-Cedar. ERP Vendors (such as Workday) do not manage all aspects of a college’s ERP transition and instead work with third-party companies who facilitate the work of the transition with technical, hands-on support as we create our new business processes and systems. We are meeting and evaluating three possible implementation partners, who will be a visible presence on campus during the entire ERP transition. We hope you will attend the presentations to learn more and share your feedback.

Huxley/Evie office hours
