Quinnipiac University’s SHRM@QU Student Organization Receives Prestigious Award from World’s Largest HR Association

Hamden, CT, June 5, 2017 — The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has awarded a 2016-2017 Merit Award designation to the Quinnipiac University SHRM student chapter (SHRM@QU) 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, 2016, to March 31, 2017.

SHRM@QU provides 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 HRACC Chapter, the CT State Council, and the national SHRM organization. Our seminars, workshops, and speakers will give someone from each major important information and skills to be as successful as possible in their career.

“I am extremely proud of our chapter’s performance,” said Dr. Fullick-Jagiela, SHRM@QU faculty advisor. “This is their third Superior Merit Award, which illustrates their hard work and dedication. This year we had some amazing speakers from Travelers, Edible Arrangements, Girl Scouts of CT, Gartner, Electri-Cable Assemblies, The WorkPlace, Employers Association of the NorthEast, and the start-up Candogram. We held our first annual Diversity and Inclusion Day run by Chelsea Campbell and Kristina Maceira. We also had two members David Bouton and Dori Horne compete and place 4th at the SHRM Student Case Competition, East. It has been a stellar year!”
