No upcoming events


SHRM@QU is a local student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management. We provide students from across the University 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, the CT State Council, and the national SHRM organization.

The objectives of this chapter include:

*Promoting the exchange of work-related experience of established business professionals with the theoretical academic perspectives of student and faculty members through open forums and information exchanges.

*Encouraging the acquisition, growth, and continuation of our respective careers in human resource management through expanded knowledge, camaraderie, respect, and mutual support among chapter members and through our affiliation with SHRM and our sponsoring chapter.

*Provide a pool of human resource management leaders for perpetuation of the chapter and of SHRM.

*Function as an important vehicle for promoting the field of human resource management to students.


On April 14th, 2015, SHRM@QU had the pleasure of having Dr. Therese Sprinkle plus board members of the HRAGNH chapter, and CT SHRM state council representatives come to Quinnipiac University for a workshop. Margaret Judge, Past State Director of CT SHRM, presented SHRM@QU with a check of $250 dollars for our excellent job over the past year and in honor of the members that participated in the SHRM student case competition.

Professor Sprinkle’s workshop focused on flexible work arrangements, research results, and ways to strategize the use of technology to manage the work-home boundary. She showed us results from experiments to conclude the best ways for employees to organize their work and home life. Her interactive workshop asked participants to brainstorm ideas and address the dilemmas she presented. The HRAGNH and CT SHRM members also provided input and advice as professionals in the HR field, and we were able to discuss the different perspectives, expectations, and experiences.
