Gloria Nelson joined Florida Polytechnic University in May 2014. After spending 16 years in the legal field, she easily transitioned her background in law to higher education and to human resources. She brings her foundational strengths of employment law, contracts, and finance to her role in compensation and classification and operations administration.

Nelson plans to sit for the HRCI Professionals in Human Resources certification (PHR) in January 2021. She is influenced heavily by the work of CUPA-HR, the national organization which focuses exclusively on HR in higher education. She is looking forward to broadening her knowledge and experience in the areas diversity, equity and inclusion, and talent management.
