The Outstanding Student Chapter Award recognizes specific programs and activities conducted by SHRM student chapters that distinguish them from other chapters.
The award will consist of an inscribed plaque, as well as a certificate for the chapter advisor and chapter president. Additionally, each chapter will receive a special “Outstanding Student Chapter” graphic to proudly display on their chapter’s web page. These chapters will be featured on the SHRM Student Programs website and in the SHRMStudent Focus supplement to HRMagazine®. There will not be a monetary award. Awards will be presented to student chapter advisors and chapter presidents of the winning student chapters at the Annual Student Conference held in conjunction with SHRM’s Annual Conference & Exposition.
In addition to qualifying for the Superior Merit Award, chapters applying for the Outstanding Student Chapter Award must meet specific criteria as outlined in the Merit Award Planning Workbook.
Significant achievement in the following broad categories will be recognized:
Promotion of Assurance of Learning Assessment||Campus/Community Service Innovation/Technology Programming/Education Recruitment
The Selection Committee looks for innovative projects created and implemented by the chapter. Special consideration is given to those successful programs that are readily transferable to other chapters. Examples include, but are not limited to:
A program designed to assist in the transition from college to career. An effort to provide innovative support to your sponsoring professional chapter. A creative program designed to meet the professional development needs of individual members. An outstanding contribution to the strategic direction and programs of SHRM. A new program to foster the quality process or competitiveness of your student chapter. A program which provides inventive support and guidance to a local community organization.
Eligible student chapters will apply for the Outstanding Student Chapter Award as part of the Merit Award application/report process.
