Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM)
SHRM is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. Representing more than 250,000 members in over 140 countries (to include student members), the Society serves the needs of HR professionals and advances the interests of the HR profession. Founded in 1948, SHRM has more than 575 affiliated chapters within the United States and subsidiary offices in China and India.
The UNCP SHRM student chapter provides opportunities for students to network on the local level. SHRM has regular meetings with scheduled programs designed to help members learn more about HR and the real world of business.
Elected student officers run the chapters with the assistance of a chapter advisor and our sponsoring professional SHRM chapter FASHRM.
Beyond the regular meetings, the UNCP SHRM Student Chapter organizes a variety of activities including student conferences, professional development workshops, fundraisers, an annual community service project called Give2theTroops, and a variety of social events. These activities allow students to learn more about human resource management while building relationships with local professionals and other students.
More than 450 affiliated SHRM student chapters offer local activities on university campuses throughout the United States. National student membership in SHRM does not automatically constitute membership in your on-campus student chapter. Students should speak with their chapter advisor for more information.
