Linda Lulli, Vice President for Human Resources at Bryant University, Receives Honorary Life Membership in CUPA-HR 

Linda Lulli, vice president for human resources at Bryant University, has been granted honorary life membership in the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR). Honorary life membership is the highest honor for recognizing retired or soon-to-be-retired CUPA-HR members who have demonstrated a lifetime commitment to the higher education human resources profession and long-term leadership in the association.

Lulli has been a CUPA-HR member for nearly 20 years and has been a dedicated association leader for the past decade. She began her service as a member of the association’s Eastern Region board of directors in 2006 and served for three years in that role. She was elected to the national board of directors in 2010 and served as chair in 2014-15. In addition, Lulli has chaired a number of CUPA-HR committees, including the diversity, equity and inclusion committee, the annual conference program committee and the public policy committee. She’s also been active in the association’s Wildfire program, which provides leadership and career development opportunities for early-career higher ed HR professionals; facilitated the development of the association’s new board member onboarding experience; and is a frequent presenter at CUPA-HR conferences. Lulli will retire later this year from Bryant University, where she has served for nearly 20 years in HR leadership.

CUPA-HR is higher ed HR. We serve higher education by providing the knowledge, resources, advocacy and connections to achieve organizational and workforce excellence. Headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee, and serving more than 20,000 HR professionals and other campus leaders at more than 1,900 member organizations around the country and abroad, the association offers learning and professional development programs, higher education salary and benefits data, extensive online resources and just-in-time regulatory and legislative information.
