SHRM Student Chapter

The purpose of our SHRM Student Chapter is to grant local college students the opportunity to learn from and network with Human Resources Professionals throughout Memphis, TN. The student group hosts several events throughout the academic year such as guest lectures from top HR executives, role-playing scenarios, community involvement, networking activities and much more. Our chapter is regularly involved with top companies here in Memphis such as AutoZone, FedEx, International Paper, Service Master, The City of Memphis, Verso Paper and many others.

Our student chapter also regularly attends events outside of our monthly meetings. In the Fall of 2016 the student chapter attended the annual SHRM State Conference, hosted here in Memphis. The event lasted 3 days with opportunities for students to network with 500+ HR Professionals as well as attend a Professional Panel session geared entirely toward HR career development.

The SHRM Student chapter also competes in the National SHRM Student Case Competition. Our chapter competed for the first time in the Spring of 2017 in Houston, TX where we took 1st place against 20+ competitive schools from around the globe. Some of our competitors traveled from Hong Kong, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and numerous schools throughout the US.
