Society for Human Resource Management
The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is the largest professional association in the world devoted exclusively to human resource management, and is comprised of HR professionals, academics, and business leaders. The Southeastern Louisiana University SHRM chapter is one of over 300 student chapters nationwide, and is sponsored by the Northshore Region Human Resource Association, a chapter of human resource professionals.
SHRM at Southeastern Louisiana University is intended to allow those students interested in the field of human resource management to go beyond the classroom and interact with human resource, personnel and industrial relations professionals. Students are afforded a unique opportunity to interact with the real world of human resources through participation with the local professional chapter. This is accomplished through guest speakers, shadow programs and internships. When you join SHRM, you get access to all that, plus opportunities to network with HR professionals from every sector, every industry, and even every country in the world.
Additionally, the national SHRM foundation offers competitive graduate and undergraduate scholarships, as well as numerous student awards for chapter members who are HR majors. Eligible students may also sit for the Human Resource Certification Institute’s basic examination and be certified Professional in Human Resources (PHR) upon successful completion of the exam and after gaining the requisite work experience.
