Hamden, CT May 29, 2018 — The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has awarded a 2017-2018 Superior Merit Award designation to the Quinnipiac 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.
“As we move Together Forward, young professionals like these being honored at distinguished student chapters play a vital role in SHRM’s success,” said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, president and chief executive officer of SHRM. “I’m especially honored to thank this year’s award winners because they offer excellent evidence that SHRM’s future is indeed in good hands.”
SHRM student chapters have the opportunity to earn an award based on the number of activities they complete during the merit award cycle, the most recent one of which lasted from April 1, 2017, to March 31, 2018.
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 forth Superior Merit Award, which illustrates the hard work and dedication of our e-board, Kristina Maceira, Michael Courtemanche, Cate Walsh, Kelli Liebermann, and Cody Carr. This year we had some amazing speakers including, Evonne Duzant, Senior Personnel Analyst for the City of New Haven; Karen Hinds, founder and CEO of The Workplace Success Group LLC; Angela Karachristos, Owner & Principal Consultant at Anthos Consulting LLC; Sal Strazza, HR Manager at Terex Corporation; Glenn Jurgen, Human Resources Manager at BlumShapiro; Lois Krause, HR consultant at KardasLarson, LLC; Dr. Wendy Bedwell, President at PACE Consulting Solutions, LLC; and Kyla Fuentes, Client Support Specialist at Indeed.com. We held our second annual Diversity and Inclusion Day with over 100 students in attendance. We also had two students, Cody Carr and Alex Acquarulo, compete and place 3rd at the Tri-State SHRM Student Case Competition. It has been an incredible year!”
