The School of Labor and Employment Relations has close to 3,000 alumni.  Most of our alums have pursued careers related to human resources, employment relations, and labor.  LER grads are leaders in their field and work for multinational corporations, family businesses, local and international unions, national law firms, medical centers, universities, and government agencies. 

LER grads are among the most committed and loyal alums of the university.  Many remain engaged with the School long after graduation.  Their professional experience is a tremendous resource for our students and faculty.  LER alums give back to our program by serving as members of our APG Board, which you can read more about on our website.  They regularly come back to campus to speak to classes or conduct sessions with our students on careers, job search strategies, and other relevant topics.  They sponsor internships for our students and contact the School when they have job openings.  They serve as resume reviewers to make sure our students put their best foot forward when they search for internships or jobs.  And they regularly make financial contributions directed to the School which enable us to enrich the experience of our students in a myriad of ways.

If you are a Labor Studies, LIR, or LER alum, I invite you to reengage with our program.  Your involvement could really make a difference in the lives and careers of the students who have followed you in the program.  Please explore the alumni-related pages on our website to see the various ways that alumni give back to LER and to Penn State.  And don’t hesitate to get in touch using the contact info included on the website.
