Richard F. Nugent Jr., director of employee relations, employment and training and development at Notre Dame, was promoted to assistant vice president for human resources at the University.
A 1977 graduate of Notre Dame, Nugent previously served as the University's assistant director of human resources from 1995-98. He replaces Roger Mullins, who resigned effective July 1.
"Rich brings with him extensive experience in all aspects of human resources, as well as a keen knowledge of and appreciation for the mission of Notre Dame," said Father William Beauchamp the University's executive vice president. "The University is pleased and fortunate to have an individual with his expertise take on the leadership of our department of human resources."
Before returning to his alma mater, Nugent directed labor and employee relations activities for Miles, Inc. (now Bayer Corp.) for nine years, first as manager and director of labor relations in what was then the company's headquarters in Elkhart, Ind., from 1986-92, and then as director of employee and labor relations at corporate headquarters in Pittsburgh from 1992-95.
In the latter position he was responsible for activities related to employee labor relations for the 22,000-employee Fortune 100 company.
After earning a bachelor's degree from Notre Dame in American studies, Nugent attended the Valparaiso University School of Law, from which he was graduated in 1980.
Nugent is life certified as a senior professional in human resources, and is admitted to the bar in Indiana and Pennsylvania. He is a member of the Indiana State Bar Association.
