School of Labor & Employment Relations mourns the loss of Stan Gully

Stan Gully, Professor of Human Resource Management in our School, passed away unexpectedly on October 9th, 2017. Professor Gully made a significant contribution in the three years he was a member of our faculty. He was an exceptional teacher, mentor, and colleague. He was also a well-respected scholar in the fields of human resource management and organizational behavior, having been named a fellow of the Society of Industrial and Organizational Psychology in 2014, as well as having been ranked by the Academy of Management in 2012 in the top 50 of the most influential scholars who received their degrees since 1991. His publication record includes a range of articles in top journals including Personnel Psychology, Industrial and Organizational Psychology: Perspectives on Science and Practice, Journal of Organizational Behavior, Journal of Applied Psychology, and Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes. Professor Gully also co-authored several books with Professor Jean Phillips, including Strategic Staffing, Human Resource Management, and Organization Behavior: Tools for Success. He earned his Ph.D. from Michigan State University in 1997 and previously was on the faculty of the School of Management and Labor Relations at Rutgers.

A memorial service was held on campus on November 4 to celebrate Professor Gully’s life.  Over 150 current and former students and colleagues attended. 

To honor Professor Gully's contributions, our School is working to establish the Gully Student Development Program. Using assessment and development, the Program will help students develop important professional competencies that will facilitate their becoming influential HR and ER leaders. This program will allow the School to go above and beyond our curriculum to provide an individual assessment and personalized career competency development action plan for participating students. A fundraising effort is underway to establish the Program. Friends and former students and colleagues of Stan's who wish to contribute to this effort can give online at: https://giveto.psu.edu/StanGullyFund
