Merit Award

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) in Alexandria, Va., recently bestowed the Superior Merit Award designation to the Employment and Labor Relations Student Chapter for an exceptional job of providing opportunities for growth and development to its student chapter members. This marks the eleventh year that the IUP SHRM chapter has achieved this award.

“SHRM is proud to recognize our Superior Merit and Merit Award winning student chapters. They have demonstrated leadership through their proven ability to serve the networking and educational needs of human resources students and to the advancement of the human resources profession,” said Chuck Salvetti, SHRM’s student programs manager.

The SHRM student chapter merit award program, which began in 1972, exists to develop more effective student chapters and to promote outstanding activities and projects by student chapters in four areas: basic student chapter requirements, chapter programming and professional development of members, support of the human resource profession, and partnership with SHRM.
