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 Thursday, October 22nd, 2015, Linda Walker Horbal the President and Certification Director of the Human Resource Association of Greater New Haven Area (HRAGNH) came to speak to the SHRM@QU members. Linda explained to the students the journey she took to where she is today. Today she is the Project Coordinator of the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness (CCEH). The students were curious as to leadership development she experienced in life. Throughout her life her she was prepared to be a leader through the positions she held. When at Midstate Medical Center she developed a leadership-training program. She not only explained her leadership roles in life but she gave the students advice on how to juggle everything from working in the real world to families and relationships. Linda opened the eyes of the students to the different types of leaderships roles and the importance of balance in their lives. [Post written by Chelsea Campbell]
