Support the Center

Make a gift to the Center for Human Resources and Labor Studies

The support of alumni and friends through donations, bequests and other forms of giving is critical to the on-going work of the center. There are three primary giving options you can choose:

MA-HRIR Fellowship Fund

MA-HRIR Fellowship Fund

Recruiters searching to hire top-quality HR Master's students come to the Carlson School's HRIR program because they know our students have received an outstanding education in HRIR, working with internationally-respected faculty members. In order to maintain this culture of excellence and attract the best and brightest students to Carlson, we must continue to offer them financial support.

Herman Library Fund

Herman Library Fund

The Herman Library is a comprehensive reference library that specializes in human resource management and labor relations, and is open to students, faculty, the professional community, and the public. The library provides information on a broad range of topics of importance to HR practitioners and researchers. Your financial support of the library is needed to help ensure that this collection remains robust and up-to-date.
