Anderson Schools Student Club Honored at National Conference

July 25, 2001

ALBUQUERQUE – The University of New Mexico student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has again been honored as one of the Top Ten SHRM Student Chapters for 2000 –2001. This chapter has remained in the top ten in the past three years.

Dr. Howard Smith, Dean of The Anderson Schools, offers his praise for the consistent performance of the HR program. “Anderson has a long tradition of excellence in training about human resources,” he said. “Whether it be with pro-active students such as those involved with and providing leadership to SHRM or faculty members that find new ways to communicate their knowledge to the community, we’re all very proud of the breadth and depth of this department."

This national recognition is based on points earned by the student chapter though activities which improve the area’s awareness of human resource issues, such as sponsoring seminars, visiting companies, or creating a website. As Beth McFarland, Manager of Student Programs for SHRM, explains in her congratulatory letter, "winning this award demonstrates that your chapter has done an outstanding job of providing opportunities for growth and development to your members."
