OHR Office Hours for Staff and Faculty

The Office of Human Resources is pleased to offer Zoom office hours for staff and faculty as an opportunity to ask questions, provide feedback and receive information on a variety of topics. We will engage in a conversation about workplace developments and communication highlights, and will offer group discussion or private consultation in break-out rooms with HR Representatives.

Buddhist Group

Amherst Buddhist Group: Guided Meditation and Discussion

Whether you're an experienced meditator or brand new to the practice, whether you identify as Buddhist or are just curious about the teachings, come join us to slow down, relax, and gain self-awareness tools. Or just come to talk about what it means to live from compassion and awareness.
