Human Resources and Management Advisory Boards


What is the HR Advisory Board

  • The HR Advisory Board is a group of area human resource management professionals that meet twice a year with the HR faculty and student representatives to discuss matters related to the delivery of a top-notch HR program at UW Oshkosh. 
  • Members of the board discuss curriculum, projects and classroom exercises, fundraising efforts, scholarship development, activities of the UW Oshkosh Student Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management, and job prospects for internships and full-time employment
  • The HR Advisory Board has been providing input into the development of the HR program at UW Oshkosh since 2001.

Who are the Advisory Board Members?

  • The HR Advisory Board is made of up human resource managers, generalists and specialists at all levels of management.  Many board members are UW Oshkosh alumni and have a keen understanding of the human resource field, the UW Oshkosh HR curriculum, and the area labor market.
