SMLR Learning Objectives


Three Core Areas for Success in SMLR

The curriculum in the programs within SMLR focus on different areas (i.e., HRM, LSER) and levels of study (ie. undergraduate, master’s, Ph.D.).  Across these programs, we strive to advance students' cognitive skills and processes, their knowledge of theory and application, and develop their professional skills. Areas include:

William S. Borden Graduate Memorial Fund

William S. "Bill" Borden, MLER ’83, was an advisor and instructor at SMLR. Bill always went above and beyond to help students at SMLR and was an inspiration for students and colleagues alike. Bill served in the U.S. Navy for two tours during World War II and the Korean War.
