For the second consecutive year, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), a worldwide professional organization, awarded the Superior Merit Award to the University of Minnesota, Morris SHRM student chapter for providing exceptional opportunities for growth and development to its members.

The Morris SHRM student chapter receives a plaque to display at the University and is recognized in SHRM publications and at its conferences.

Philip Deger, Morris SHRM faculty adviser, “acknowledges the support of our parent chapter, West Central Minnesota SHRM, and the leadership of Kara Norris ’10, Zimmerman, Morris SHRM president."

“The SHRM Student Chapter Merit Award program recognizes the top student chapters from among the more than 400 SHRM-affiliated student chapters nationwide,” states Chuck Salvetti, SHRM’s nationwide student programs manager. “Recipients have a proven track record of providing members networking and educational opportunities that assist their members in making the transition from backpack to briefcase.”

Its mission is to serve the needs of HR professionals by providing the most current and comprehensive resources, and to advance the profession by promoting HR’s essential, strategic role.
