LU SHRM Student Chapter
Our mission is to glorify God through providing our members opportunities for:
- Professional development
- Service to the community
- Support to promote the human resource management profession
The LU SHRM offers development opportunities such as resume workshops, interview workshops, and networking events with HR professionals. Because human resource skills are beneficial to management as a whole, any School of Business student, regardless of the cognate, can benefit from the teaching of human resource professionals.
As an affiliate, LU SHRM has received national merit awards for its work in the community and contributions to student professional development.
In the fall of 2020, Kimberly Graham, LUSHRM President, and Ashley Dawson, LUSHRM Director of Membership, entered the HR Virginia Student Competition, where they received the opportunity to showcase their HR knowledge to HR practitioners across Virginia. This competition is an event that offers the opportunity to bring HR professionals, students, and student chapter advisors together in a meaningful way.
Liberty University competed against seven schools in Virginia, including VCU, Virginia Tech, and JMU. The LUSHRM team received 3rd Place after presenting on the topic of Employee Engagement and Productivity During the Current Pandemic. They discussed the relevance of Employee Engagement, the problem and some solutions to Employee Engagement during the current pandemic, and the innovation of both small and large companies in remote working.
This topic, which is relevant to current HR professionals, demonstrated thorough research and innovative applications for engaging employees in a remote-working environment.
