Welcome to the Labor Resource Center & Labor Studies Department

The Labor Resource Center provides education through academic degree programs, professional certificates, and labor extension, and conducts research on issues surrounding work, economic and social justice, racial and gender equality, and the labor movement in the United States and around the world. The students, staff, faculty, and workers who comprise the Labor Resource Center are part of the most exciting campaigns of the 21st century, fighting for economic, racial, and gender equality, immigrant workers’ rights, food and environmental justice, and a diverse and democratic labor movement. Our graduates are in high demand and go on to outstanding careers with labor unions, workers’ rights organizations, NGOs, government agencies, and other social justice organizations.
