HRD Minor Advising:

Per University guidelines, the student’s home college or major department is responsible for advising students pursuing a minor in Human Resource Development. Students may email the EAHR Undergraduate Advisors if they have questions about courses. We regret that we are not able to force HRDV minors into full EHRD courses.
