Please Consider Supporting LER

Our most important mission at the School of LER is to ensure that all of the students in our program have the best experience possible while at Penn State and are prepared, upon graduation, to become professionals in the fields of human resources, labor, and employment relations.  We work very hard to accomplish this mission and one of the reasons we are able to do so much for our students is the generous financial support we receive from our alums.  If you are able to help, please consider making a contribution to LER.  This contribution can be designated to go to the general LER School fund (which is used to support our student organizations, student activities and events, etc.) or to one of our existing endowed funds (see below).
