On June 2, 2017 The Lehman College Student Chapter of SHRM was awarded a 2016-2017 Merit Award designation providing superior growth and development opportunities to student chapter members. Of the 327 student chapters from across the United States, Lehman College 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.”
