COBI earns SHRM Outstanding Student Chapter Award

The UT COBI Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) received the highest recognition possible from SHRM when it was named an Outstanding Chapter for 2016-2017 in July.

“All praise goes to our awesome student leadership,” proclaimed Dr. Jenell Wittmer, faculty advisor to the Chapter. “We have received the Outstanding Chapter twice in the past three years, having received the Superior Chapter Award the other. .  This is great news and a wonderful recognition of the hard work and efforts our HR students apply within our professional organization.” Our University of Toledo student team also took second place at the East Region SHRM Student Case Competition in Philadelphia, PA this year. This has been a great year for UT SHRM!

The Outstanding Student Chapter award is given to SHRM student chapters whose programs and activities were at a level that distinguished them from other chapters. This award represents significant achievement in one of five categories: recruitment, programming/education, innovation/technology, campus/community service or promotion of assurance of learning assessment.

The Society for Human Resource Management's Student Program was created in 1965 to promote mutually beneficial interaction between HRM students and practitioners. The program now includes over 250 affiliated student chapters and more than 19,000 student members.
