Our Name

Body

We are often asked about our name and what it stands for. CHRR was founded in 1965 as the Center for Human Resources Research. While our name’s history comes from an acronym, we changed our to-do-business name to CHRR at The Ohio State University to reflect changes in our mission and the expanded global nature of our work. Today, we use CHRR at The Ohio State University to emphasize being part of one of the nation’s leading research universities while providing services for researchers worldwide.
