The University of Indianapolis has appointed Candance Wells-Meyer as the program director for the University’s innovative Master of Professional Studies (MPS) degree program in Human Resources Development and Administration, which launched earlier this year.

Wells-Myers brings to the role a portfolio of human resource leadership and management including positions at St. Vincent’s Hospital and Indiana Farm Bureau. She holds professional designations as a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR), a Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP), and a Certified Compensation Professional (CCP). She is also an adjunct faculty in the University of Indianapolis’ Department of Communications and is widely recognized for her impact as a respected professional within Indiana’s human resource network. She earned a master of arts degree in Communication Studies (with an emphasis in Organizational Development) from Northern Illinois University, and a bachelor of science degree in Communications in Business from the University of Indianapolis.

UIndy’s MPS program features a group or “cohort” format with an applied program of study and collaborative projects founded in human resources management on such topics as ethics and workplace law, labor negotiation and budget, and employee compensation and benefits.
