Labor Education and Research Center

The Labor Education and Research Center (LERC) at the University of Oregon makes the resources and expertise of the higher education system available to workers, unions, policy makers and community partners throughout Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. The center’s Portland-area activities include extension-education courses, conferences and programs for working people, union staff and elected leaders. These events are intended to foster creative and critical thinking and help participants develop skills and knowledge for labor leadership. In addition, Portland faculty members conduct applied research and provide technical assistance to workers and their organizations.
