The Charles and Renate Frydman Educational Resource Center
The Educational Resource Center (ERC) is an academic support unit of the College of Education and Human Services. It provides intellectual and physical access to current state-of-the-art materials, equipment and services benefiting educators, human services professionals, students, and others. Its mission is to serve as a role model in the use of technology and to offer support in preparing exemplary professionals. The ERC strives to provide leadership, instruction, and consulting assistance in the use of instructional technology. The Instructional Materials Center and the Media Production Lab are both parts of the Educational Resource Center.

Dayton Holocaust Resource Center
Housed within the Center are teaching materials donated by the Dayton Holocaust Resource Center. This nationally recognized collection of Holocaust teaching materials, i.e. books, curriculum guides, videos and education files, is one of the most extensive collections of its kind in the Midwest. These items are available for local checkout or may be requested through OhioLink.

Of special interest, Faces of the Holocaust, is a unique series of videos produced at Wright State University. Each video is done in an interview format. Some interviews are eyewitness accounts told by survivors or observers. Other stories are told by descendents of survivors. Some are first-hand reports by liberators and by protectors of Holocaust Jews.
