AHRD Insight & Importance
The Academy of Human Resource Development conference is an opportunity for HRD PhD students to meet and interact with future colleagues, HRD scholars, and literacy giants. PhD students can learn about current research in the HRD field and up and coming research that would be beneficial in upcoming years. Connections made at this conference can lead to collaboration on research projects with scholars at other institutions, strategic networking for advancement and potential job opportunities.
AHRD is also the professional home of UT Tyler’s Human Resource Development (HRD) Department. Soules College of Business HRD faculty have been longstanding leaders within AHRD, including:
- Dr. Cho, Dr. Ellinger, Dr. McWhorter, Dr. Nimon, and Dr. Wang have served as editors, associate editors, or assistant editors of three of the four journals sponsored by AHRD.
- Dr. Judy Sun is an active board member.
- PhD students have won many awards in recent years. See a list of distinguished awards won by past conference attendees from the Soules College of Business.
WHAT IS THE GOAL:
There are currently 53 students enrolled in the HRD PhD program at UT Tyler Soules College of Business. Our goal is to send 10 students to the 2022 conference at a cost of $1,000 per student.
We are thrilled to announce that the Soules College of Business Dean’s office has approved $4,370 co-curricular dollars to be allocated for the Academy of HRD Conference to help with registration, travel, and lodging for students!
This means that our original goal of $10,000 has now been adjusted to $5,630.
Thank you for making your gift today and sharing this with others to help us reach our 2022 goal! Talons Up!
