School of Management and Labor Relations (SMLR) has a broad mission. It
seeks to create and disseminate knowledge that fosters a better
understanding of employment and work in modern society. Beyond that,
the school strives to promote harmony between management and labor and
improve employment systems and relationships.
In pursuit of
this mission, SMLR faculty members conduct research, organize credit
and noncredit programs, and provide technical assistance to
corporations and labor organizations.
The quality of the
school's various graduate programs won it recognition in a recent
publication that rated graduate and professional programs in America
and at international universities. SMLR was one of only eight graduate
programs in industrial relations classified by this report as "very
strong." With the growing reputation of its faculty, the success of its
graduates, and continuing support from Rutgers, SMLR can look forward
to further growth of its reputation and prestige over the next decade.
