Quinnipiac University SHRM@QU Student Organization Receives Prestigious Award from World’s Largest HR Association
Hamden, CT, June 2, 2016 — The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has awarded a 2015-2016 Superior Merit Chapter Award designation to the Quinnipiac University SHRM student chapter for providing superior growth and development opportunities to its student chapter members.
The SHRM student chapter merit award program, which began in 1972, was created to encourage student chapters to require ongoing excellence in the following areas: student chapter requirements, chapter operations, chapter programming and professional development of members, support of the human resource profession and SHRM engagement.
“These chapters truly represent the future of the HR profession,” said Susan Post, SHRM-SCP, East Divisional Director at SHRM and the lead for SHRM’s Student Programs. “Their achievements go above and beyond their everyday academic and work commitments and we applaud the positive impact their efforts have on their schools, their local communities and beyond.”
SHRM student chapters have the opportunity to earn an award based on the number of activities they complete during the merit award cycle, which lasted from April 1, 2015, to March 31, 2016.
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 and the national SHRM organization. If you have any questions, or are interested in joining SHRM@QU, please contact Professor Fullick-Jagiela at firstname.lastname@example.org
