Smiley Economic History Fellowship

Robert W. Smiley, Jr. “I'm delighted to be a part of the Rutgers School of Management and Labor Relations fellowship program. These young scholars will be studying the role of broad-based employee ownership in our free market economic system.  Rutgers’ initiative is an important step into the future of scholarship in this area.” – Robert W. Smiley, Jr.

J. Robert Beyster Professorship

The Beyster Professorship is SMLR’s first endowed professorship. An endowed professorship is one of the highest honors a university can bestow and is reserved for an eminent scholar whose work and research significantly advances the discipline. The Beysters’ generosity is recognition of the unparalleled level of expertise that the School of Management and Labor Relations has in the area of employee ownership, profit-sharing, and broad-based stock options.
