TB Connects


The CHROs of TBC’s member institutions were thrilled to kick off their learning and networking program for director-level HR staff last month at Emerson. The program, The Evolving Nature of Human Resources in Higher Education, will lead participants through eight sessions focused on major topics of importance in HR. A capstone project focused on collaboration and problem solving between TBC institutions, especially in the focus areas presented during the sessions, wraps up the academic-year program next spring.

During a strategic planning session last year, the CHROs identified professional development for their staff as a near-term goal for their cohort. To make this program unique to TBC and its mission, the collaborative capstone project was added to the framework. The hope is that participants will expand their skill sets in human resources while forging new relationships across TBC’s institutions, which could ultimately lead to opportunities for new strategic offerings and shared services.

Special thanks to Shari Stier, Senior Associate Vice President and CHRO, Emerson College, and Larry Lewellen, Interim Vice President for Human Resources, Brandeis University, for leading the first session, and to Shari and George Cangiano, Vice President/CHRO, Bentley University, who are serving as mentors for the capstone groups.

Wishing you a happy fall,
Kitty Kennedy
Executive Director
