The Minnesota State Community and Technical College Student Human Resource Organization has received the 2017-18 national Merit Chapter designation for the superior growth and development opportunities it provides to its student members.
The designation is awarded by the national Society for Human Resource Management to outstanding chapters. The merit program recognizes achievement in the areas of professional operation of the chapter, professional development of members, support of the profession and partnership with SHRM.
M State’s Student Human Resource Organization, based on the Moorhead campus, has been affiliated with SHRM since 2006. The organization currently has 15 members and is advised by Human Resources faculty member Loren Haagenson.
Last year the group had the opportunity to compete at the State HR Student Competition, fundraise for student scholarships, network with other HR professionals, volunteer at the campus job fair and complete a company visit.
