Attending Villanova for my master's degree (in HRD) was one of the best professional decisions I ever made.
I found the program rigorous and rewarding. The faculty offered current and comprehensive industry knowledge. The core curriculum was grounded in the business of human resources; the electives were varied and relevant. The course designs complemented the subject matter, and there was an appropriate balance of individual and group projects.
The support of both faculty and students contributed to my success in the program. I highly recommend the Villanova (HRD) Program.

St. Thomas of Villanova Day of Service (Fall 2010)
Every September, Villanova University holds a celebration honoring St. Thomas of Villanova, the 16th-century Augustine bishop of Valencia, Spain, and patron of the University. This tradition will continue in September 2010 with four days of special events.
Saturday, September 11 will be dedicated to a Day of Service in the Greater Philadelphia region. Students, faculty, staff, alumni and families will partner with community agencies to perform service in local neighborhoods.
This year, the Villanova Student Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management will be participating as a group. This will provide Graduate HRD students the opportunity to network with each other, make connections and serve the community. We will be volunteering at Inglis House, a skilled nursing care facility for adults with physical disabilities.
We invite you to join us on this day to get to know your fellow Graduate HRD peers!
Philabundance (Spring 2010)
On Friday, February 19, 2010 Human Resource Development students volunteered at Philabundance in Philadelphia. The volunteer project was a joint effort between the Villanova Student SHRM Chapter and the undergraduate Villanova Communication Honors Society, Lambda Pi Eta.
Students spent the day at the Philabundance distribution center on Berks Street in Philadelphia. They were provided with an overview of Philabundance’s mission and current initiatives, as well as a tour of the facility. The project assignment included packaging and weighing boxes of food for delivery to elderly Delaware Valley residents.
Philabundance is the region's largest hunger organization. It's mission is to end hunger and malnutrition in the Delaware Valley by acquiring food and distributing it through organizations serving people in need.
