The Annual Milton Derber Lecture was instituted in 1990 to honor Professor Emeritus Milton Derber.
Besides honoring Derber, the lecture was established to serve as a focal point for the intellectual enrichment for the school, its faculty and its students, as well as for the university community. Nationally known experts in a variety of employment relations subject areas are featured in this event, which is open to the public.
The School of Labor and Employment Relations gratefully acknowledges the endowment of Clara Derber Bloomfield, Albert de la Chapelle and Charles Derber in honor of Milton and Zelda Derber for the LER Annual Milton Derber Lecture on Industrial Relations. Their generous gift recognizes the scholarly achievements of Professor Milton Derber in research, teaching and leadership in the field of industrial relations.
