ILR welcomes new faculty members

The School of Industrial and Labor Relations (ILR) will welcome nine new faculty members this fall, completing a two-year cycle in which it hired 15 new members.

New hires this fall are:

  • Michele Belot, economics;
  • Sarah Besky, international and comparative labor;
  • Brittany Bond, organizational behavior;
  • Sean Fath, organizational behavior;
  • Desiree LeClercq, international and comparative labor, and labor relations, law and history;
  • Philipp Kircher, economics;
  • Courtney McCluney, organizational behavior;
  • Tejasvi Nagaraja, labor relations, law and history; and
  • Duanyi Yang, labor relations, law and history.

“These outstanding scholars are incredibly talented researchers and teachers whose expertise in exciting new areas will impact the futures of thousands of students,” said Alex Colvin, Ph.D. ’99, the Kenneth F. Kahn ’69 Dean and the Martin F. Scheinman ’75, M.S. ’76 Professor of Conflict Resolution in the ILR School.

Recent retirements of a number of ILR faculty who were leading scholars in their fields and outstanding teachers necessitated the recent rounds of hiring. The new faculty hires will enable ILR to maintain and expand its curriculum, and explore course offerings in new topics related to the world of work, Colvin said.
