Baebler Featured for Online HR Degree Programs
Barrett Baebler, chair of the Management Department in the George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology, is the featured "interview with an expert" for OnlineCollege.com's ranking and overview of human resources degree programs.
In the interview, Baebler discusses Webster's HR undergrad and graduate programs and explains Webster's online offerings.
"Our staff members are always willing to help students out via phone, e-mail or the online student commons," he explains.
"We know that our students are busy adults, and we value being able to offer them flexibility throughout their education. If someone lives in St. Louis or near a domestic or international metropolitan campus that offers an HR master's degree, they would be able to seamlessly jump between on-campus or online course offerings.
"The learning outcomes and program requirements are the same regardless of the delivery method."

"Employers who attend networking events on university and college campuses have immediate access to college students from various economic and cultural backgrounds while connecting information to students about opportunities for the company or organization they are representing. This information can be helpful for short and long-term career goal setting and connecting students to professionals in the fields."

Craig Miller, director, Facilities Planning, was interviewed for the Webster-Kirkwood Times story on the installation of the tower crane during construction of the Interdisciplinary Science Building (ISB).
"This is the first time that a tower crane has been used for a construction project on Webster University's campus, and I know they are an unusual site in Webster Groves," said Craig Miller, Sr., the Interdisciplinary Science Building project director.
