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

Stan Gully

The School is very sad to report that Stan Gully (PhD Michigan State University, 1997), 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, as well as to the fields of HRM and Organizational Behavior. Professor Gully was made 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 books with Professor Jean Phillips, including the popular titles ‘Strategic Staffing’,


Human Resource Management’, and Organization Behavior: Tools for Success’. Perhaps most of all, Stan was known for his role as a mentor and life coach to many of his students. He was dearly loved and respected by colleagues and students alike.

A memorial service to celebrate Stan’s life will be held on November 4, 2017 from 2-4 pm in 121 Sparks Building, University Park PA 16802 (Penn State Campus). If you plan to attend, it would be very helpful to us if you can please RSVP using the following link by Nov 2:
