Excelsior University Student Chapter Receives Merit Award from SHRM



The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) awarded a 2021-2022 Superior Merit Award designation to the Excelsior University SHRM student chapter for providing superior growth and development opportunities to its student members.

The SHRM Student Chapter Merit Award program encourages the development of more effective student chapters and distinguishes outstanding activities and projects. Chapters are recognized based on operations, chapter programming and professional development of members, support of the human resource profession, and SHRM involvement.

“I am pleased to announce that the engagement and work of our SHRM student chapter has been recognized. I applaud their accomplishments and ability to foster innovative programming in human resources as our students learn to navigate changing workplaces,” said David Schejbal, president of Excelsior University. “Student members represent the next generation of leaders, and we are proud of the knowledge, skill, and passion that our Excelsior students bring to their chapter and the workplace.”

SHRM student chapters had the opportunity to earn an award based on the number of activities they completed during the merit award cycle of May 1, 2021, to April 30, 2022. Excelsior’s student chapter gained recognition with their educational programs and workshops focused on human resources, distributed workforces, and careers.
