Meet Lourdes Garcia!
HR Professional Certificate Graduate

"Keep up with the good work with this excellent program!”

Lourdes Garcia graduated from the Continuing Education Department’s Human Resources (HR) Professional Certificate Program at Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) in 2016. She joined the program because of her interest in HR and wanted the opportunity to learn more about implementing HR and its importance in every business environment. Ms. Garcia thoroughly enjoyed the company of her fellow classmates and instructors, and shared her excitement over how much she learned from classmates who were already in the HR field and the advice and valuable guidance from the instructors.


The knowledge and skills she acquired from the program will be applied to her everyday work helping her to contribute to a better working environment and seek for opportunities in the HR field. When it comes to acquiring new skills and knowledge, Ms. Garcia lives by the words of Benjamin Franklin, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”
