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.

Coming and Goings
The School is sad to report the loss of long-time faculty member Richard Z. Hindle. Dick joined the then Department of Labor Studies in 1970 and retired in 1995 as Associate Professor. Primarily working in the school’s labor education program, Dick conducted programs with unions in eastern Pennsylvania as well as statewide programs at University Park and was widely known and respected by union leaders and activists across the Commonwealth. Dick also taught in the Department’s undergraduate programs and served for many years as the program’s internship coordinator. A native of Reading, Dick held degrees from Kutztown and Temple Universities. He also served in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean Conflict. Labor Studies students fortunate enough to know Professor Hindle will remember him for his warmth and welcoming smile.

She subsequently received her M.A. and Ph.D. in sociology from New York University, and spent two years at Rice University as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Sociology. She joined the faculty at LER in 2011 as an Assistant Professor of Labor and Employment Relations and Sociology.
