The Human Resource Studies Department consists of world-class faculty members engaged in research, teaching and practice. These faculty members play integral roles in the administration of the Center for Advanced Human Resource Studies (CAHRS), an ILR-based research center funded by over 50 corporations, and the ILR Executive Education Program that offers advanced training to HR practitioners. Their goal in teaching is to balance a rigorous academic research approach with a real-world practice orientation. In this way they provide their students with state-of-the-art knowledge relevant to managing human resources in organizations.
