Lehman College, City University of New York Student Group Receives Prestigious Award from World’s Largest HR Association
On May 25, 2018 the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) awarded a 2017-2018 Merit Award designation to the Lehman College Student Chapter of SHRM 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.”
