This study focused on “The Effects of Human Resource Development on Students’ Academic Performance in English Speaking Public Universities in Cameroon”. The main objective was to investigate if students’ academic performance depends on the ways human resources (Administrators and Lecturers) are being managed. Main concepts of human resources dexamined were: seminars and in-service training. This study formulated two specific objectives, and was carried out using two research questions which were later translated to two research hypotheses to ascertain the findings of the study. The study used the survey design in which quantitative and qualitative data was used as the basis on which to build and explain data. Data was collected with the use of questionnaires and interview guides. The sample was selected using the simple random sampling technique. The sample was selected using the convenient sampling technique. The sample consisted of 375 lecturers and 649 students from the two English Speaking Public Universities in Cameroon. The interview was conducted with 10 Administrators from both schools. This gave a grand total of 1034 respondents in this study. An analysis of both quantitative and qualitative data resulted in the following findings: there is a significant positive relationship between workers attaining seminars and students’ academic performance and there is a significant positive relationship between in-service training and students’ academic performance. The study therefore recommended that: when the right persons have been selected, they should be paired with experienced personnel of their field to observe how they work (in-service training) before they are given the opportunity to work on their own; the Minister of Higher Education through the Head of State should allocate some funds for seminars to be organise for staff. The study therefore concluded that human resource development is an essential tool towards institutional growth and development.
