Penn State's Department of Labor Studies and Employment Relations
For over 70 years, the mission of the Department has been to make workplaces better through teaching, research, and outreach.
From its beginnings as an extension program with a small, part-time staff of adult education specialists, the program has grown to an internationally recognized academic Department with twenty full-time faculty, six staff, 160 residential majors, 40 residential grad students, and over 1,700 part-time online students.
The Department has more than 2,500 alumni working in a range of capacities for labor unions, national and multinational corporations, small businesses, , government, and non-profits. Its Alumni Program Board was the first such group organized in the College of the Liberal Arts and has remained a leader among departmental alumni groups at Penn State. It has provided outreach education programs for tens of thousands of union leaders and activists and human resources and employment relations practitioners.
In recent years, its faculty have come to include nationally and internationally known scholars in labor studies, industrial relations, international human resource management, and global workers' rights.
