The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has awarded a 2013-2014 Outstanding Student Chapter designation to Bryant & Stratton College – Virginia Beach.
This designation was awarded to a select number of SHRM student chapters whose programs and activities were at a level that distinguished them from other chapters. This award represents significant achievement in one of five categories: Recruitment, Programming/Education, Innovation/Technology, Campus/Community Service or Promotion of Assurance of Learning Assessment.
SHRM is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. Representing more than 275,000 professional and 19,000 student members in over 140 countries, the association serves the needs of HR professionals and advances the interests of the HR profession.
"We are proud to have so many Outstanding Student Chapter awards this year. The programs and events these student members have participated in are truly exceptional," said Laurie McIntosh, director of member engagement. "They are all helping to shape the future of the HR profession through community service, technology, advocacy or another area."
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. Of the 173 SHRM-affiliated student chapters that received awards in the 2013-2014 Merit Award program, 21 chapters received an Outstanding Chapter Award designation, 28 chapters received a Superior Merit Award designation, 32 chapters achieved Merit Award status, and 41 chapters received the Honorable Mention designation.
The SHRM student chapter merit award program, which began in 1972, exists to encourage development of more effective student chapters and to promote outstanding activities and projects by student chapters 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.
