New Year, New Home, New Faculty!

SLHRD Moves to Coates Hall & Welcomes New Faculty

The LSU School of Leadership & Human Resource Development moved from its former home in the Old Forestry Building to Coates Hall in June 2013.

The move places them with fellow CHSE entity, the School of Library and Information Science. Both Schools are now housed in the Union side of Coates Hall. The office of SLHRD director Michael Burnett is located in 298A Coates.

In addition to their new home, SLHRD is also pleased to welcome two new faculty members beginning this fall. Assistant professors, Dr. Sunyoung Park and Dr. Petra Robinson bring more than 10 years combined experience to the school.

Dr. Park will continue her research in organizational culture, learning in the workplace, knowledge sharing, and the integration of human resource development, human performance technology, and instructional technology and is teaching HRE 3171 Instructional Design for Training this fall. She received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Ewha Womans University in Seoul, Korea. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota in 2011. Park brings more than five years of research and teaching experience to LSU.

 Dr. Robinson’s interests include issues related to race, class, gender, and color with specific focus on colorism. She will be teaching HRE 7025 Advanced Adult Learning Theory and Practice this fall. She received her bachelor’s and master’s from Nova Southeastern University.
