The Society for Human Resource Management at Quinnipiac University (SHRM@QU) held its first Induction ceremony on Sunday, October 28, 2014. The purpose of this organization is to provide Quinnipiac University students with the opportunity to gain knowledge and insight into the effective management of human capital in the field of Human Resource Management through affiliation with the New Haven Chapter (HRAGNH) and the national SHRM organization, the largest and most well known association for HR professionals.
There was an Officer Installation Ceremony for the executive council and Induction Ceremony for 23 new student members. Special guests included Margaret Judge, the past State Director of CT SHRM, who was instrumental in getting our chapter affiliated, Randy Chase, Director-Elect of CT SHRM State Council, Linda Walker Horbal from HRAGNH, Dean Matt O’Connor, and the faculty of the management department.
SHRM@QU faculty advisor Julia Fullick, Assistant Professor of Management, presided over the event. “This day is a day dedicated to honoring new members who have been brought into our organization. We honor our new members because they fill a very important role…they hold the key to our future. As we share our traditions and ask them to carry on the legacy of SHRM@QU, we should also look to them for new ideas and inspiration so that we may learn from them as they learn from us.” Margaret Judge presented SHRM honor cords to the executive council and SHRM pins to all new members. SHRM@QU Student President, Olivia Atkin, said, “I am so proud of everyone and so happy to share it with everyone tonight. It was a proud moment to see how far we have come.”
