The School of LER will mark the completion of 75 years of service with a Gala Dinner and Celebration!  The event will be held Friday, April 13 at the Nittany Lion Inn. 

The evening will begin with a reception at 6:00 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:00 p.m. and a program to begin at 8:00.  The theme of the dinner and program will be the Future of Work and the Workplace.  The program will draw on the expertise of our School’s faculty and will include short presentations on the future of the workforce, the human resource profession, the labor movement, and labor and employment law.  The presentations will be followed by a forum during which alums can ask questions of the faculty presenters or offer their own views about what the years ahead hold for labor and employment relations and human resource practitioners.

For alums interested in recruiting our great undergraduate and Masters students, our Career Services Coordinator Jessica Steele will hold a session to familiarize you with our newly-created LER Career Center and the background and skills our students can bring to your organization.  The session will be held before the dinner at 4:00 pm on the 13th.  For alums who cannot make it to campus by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, the session will be repeated at 9:30 a.m. Saturday the 14th.

Alums are also encouraged to organize mini-reunions of friends and acquaintances with whom they shared their time on campus.  If you need help locating classmates you have lost touch with, just contact Mark Ivicic in our office at mci104@psu.edu.

The School is also looking for organizations interested serving as sponsors for the 75th Anniversary Gala Dinner and Celebration.  Sponsorship funding will be used to defray the cost of the dinner and fund the LER Student Enrichment Fund which provides financial support for out of class student activities such as internships, student organizations, study abroad, and case competitions.  Four sponsorship levels are available at the following amounts (and the number of dinner registrations the sponsor is entitled to):

  • Platinum Sponsor      $5,000
