Society for Human Resource Management

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. Representing more than 275,000 members in over 160 countries, the Society is the leading provider of resources to serve the needs of HR professionals and advance the professional practice of human resource management.

Founded in 1948, SHRM has more than 575 affiliated chapters within the United States and subsidiary offices in China, India, and the United Arab Emirates.

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Society of Human Resource Management (UWGB SHRM) provides opportunities for students to network on the local, state, and national level through our student chapter. SHRM student chapters have regular meetings with scheduled programs designed to help members learn more about HR and the real world of business. We are one of more than 450 affiliated SHRM student chapters that offer a nationally recognized group here at campus. The activities involved with SHRM include learning more about surrounding businesses while building relationships with local professionals and surrounding businesses through company tours, student conferences, resume/interviewing workshops, business professional speakers, internship opportunities, social events, and volunteer activities.

Unlike many other organizations here on campus, Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) is nationally recognized - so no matter where you end up after you graduate, being associated with SHRM will help distinguish your resume versus other candidates for positions.
