ILR Dean Alex Colvin and Professor Harry Katz discuss the school’s expansion during Katz’s time as dean.

The growth of the ILR resident faculty from 48 to 62 positions, diversification of the student body and the establishment of the Executive Master of Human Resource Studies program are a few of the initiatives Harry Katz led as dean of ILR from 2005 to 2014.

Kahn ’69 Dean and Martin F. Scheinman Professor of Conflict Resolution, in a Zoom interview in celebration of the school's 75th anniversary and its future as the preeminent school of work, labor and employment.
