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.


SHRM@QU worked with the CT SHRM State Council to host this half-day program at Quinnipiac University, York Hill Campus. Over 75 participants explored “a treasure trove of information about the benefits of becoming a member of one of our seven dynamic Connecticut SHRM chapters.” Our featured speakers discussed the future of the Connecticut workforce, “When nothing is certain, anything is possible.”

  • Joe Carbone, CEO, The Workplace, who has been featured on 60 Minutes, discussed what the workforce of the future in CT will look like, the “in-demand” jobs and the technological changes to come. Additionally, he talked about what top-ten skills the workforce of the future will require. Mr. Carbone is also a QU alum!
  • Joy Baldridge, CPC, CSP, international speaker and author discussed how to retain, engage and motivate this workforce, what company cultures will look like with five generations at work, and what we can to handle the challenges and benefits.
  • Holly Cini, Esq., presented a Jackson Lewis Legal Review which is an up-to-date review of the most current legal trends and initiatives, case law developments, and best practices.

Students interacted with professionals from across the state to network and learn. It was an amazing opportunity to work with the CT SHRM State Council. Students also participated in a Q&A Session about careers in HRM with Dan Griffiths, Field Services Director, N/E Region; Randy Chase, Director CT SHRM State Council; Dorothy LeCoultre, The CT SHRM State Council; Janet O. Welch, CT SHRM State Council Administrator; and Michael Mueller, Director of Talent Acquisition & HR Strategy at The Walker Group. Thank you to CT SHRM State Council for inviting us to be part of this amazing program!
