The School of Industrial and Labor Relations is an industrial relations school at Cornell University, located in Ithaca, New York, United States. The School has six academic departments which include: Economics, Human Resource Management, International and Comparative Labor, Labor Relations, Organizational Behavior; and Social Statistics.
In 1944, a coalition of leaders in American business, industry, labor, government, and education formed to establish the school. They believed that a new type of school was needed that focused on issues involving the American workplace.
The school was originally housed in quonset huts, but later it moved into buildings vacated by the Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine, which were built in 1911 and are on the register of historic structures.
The school is divided into six departments: Labor Relations, Law and History; Human Resource Studies; International and Comparative Labor Relations; Economics; Organizational Behavior; and Social Statistics.
