The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has awarded a 2016-2017 Merit Award designation to the University of Wisconsin – Madison SHRM student chapter for providing superior growth and development opportunities to its student chapter members.
Of the 327 student chapters from across the United States, University of Wisconsin – Madison was one of 149 winners.
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.”
