NCCU SHRM Chapter Wins Superior Merit Award

Posted November 15, 2019, 12:00PM

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has recognized North Carolina Central University’s SHRM student chapter for the third consecutive year with the 2018-2019 Superior Merit Award for providing superior growth and development opportunities to its student chapter members.

“Our SHRM student leaders engaged in internships, professional conferences and delivered exceptional programming that accelerated their development, said Angela Miles, Ph.D., NCCU SHRM student chapter advisor and Department of Business Administration chair. “This achievement celebrates their excitement and dedication to the profession and we are honored by this recognition.” 

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. 

“SHRM allowed me to gain real world insight into the human resource industry, solidifying my intent to pursue a career in that field,” said Courtney Price, 2018-2019 vice president of NCCU’s SHRM student chapter. “The organization provided me with a network of people who can help me continue to grow and develop as a professional.” 

SHRM aims to create better workplaces where employers and employees thrive together. With more than 300,000 human resources and business executive members in 165 countries, it is the foremost expert, convener and thought leader on issues impacting today’s evolving workplaces.

“SHRM is committed to engaging the future leaders of the HR profession—HR and business students.  As we work to shape better workplaces—where employers and employees can thrive together—we are energized by the work our student chapters are doing to encourage students to choose HR as a career path,” said Johnny C. Taylor Jr., SHRM-SCP president and chief executive officer of SHRM. “Awarding this Superior Merit Award designation is just one small way for SHRM to recognize and celebrate the big steps the North Carolina Central University SHRM student chapter has taken this past academic year.”
