SHRM Student Chapter Receives Distinguished Award

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) in Alexandria, VA, has conferred the 2013-2014 Superior Merit Award designation to the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater SHRM Student Chapter for an exceptional job of providing opportunities for growth and development to its student chapter members.  This is the 30th consecutive year that the UW-Whitewater chapter has received this award.  UW-Whitewater was one of 32 student SHRM chapters to receive the Superior Merit Award this year.  The UW-Whitewater SHRM chapter will be recognized in SHRM’s publications and at its conferences.

Society for Human Resource Management students at the HR Games held in Madison, WI.

SHRM is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management.  Representing more than 275,000 professional and student members in over 160 countries, 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 professional chapters, and more than 450 student chapters within the United States.

Chapters have the opportunity to earn an award based on the number of activities they complete during the merit award cycle, which ran from April 1, 2013, to March 31, 2014. The SHRM student chapter merit award program, which began in 1972, exists to develop more effective student chapters, and to promote effective activities and projects by student chapters in the following areas: basic student chapter requirements and operations, chapter programming and professional development of members, support of the human resource profession, and partnership/engagement with SHRM.

“This was another outstanding year for our SHRM chapter,” said Jon Werner, faculty co-advisor of the chapter, along with Professor Steve Guo. “Stephanie Wilson, the chapter president, and the entire executive board, did a great job of planning and carrying out the many activities necessary for a successful chapter, and to once again receive the Superior Merit Award distinction,” said Werner.
