Jeffrey Kemp


Currently, I am a graduate student studying Human Resources and Labor Relations at the School of Labor and Industrial Relations at Michigan State University. During my first year, I have taken classes that have furthered my knowledge in the areas of Labor Law, International HR systems, and HR strategy. The knowledge and skills I have gained through this graduate program have positioned me for success as I begin a summer internship with Marathon Petroleum Company in St. Paul Park, MN.
