Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Foundation
Our AU HR Student Chapter proudly helps invest in the future of Human Resources by sending a contribution each year to help support the SHRM Foundation, a 501©(3) affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). The mission of the SHRM Foundation is to advance global human capital knowledge and practice by providing thought leadership and educational support, and sponsoring funding and driving the adoption of cutting-edge actionable, evidence-based research.
SHRM Professional Membership
Graduating SHRM student members may upgrade to a professional membership at a special discounted rate. This will extend the student’s membership for 12 months and grant immediate access to all of the professional member benefits provided by SHRM.
Benefits of SHRM Certification
There are two certifications that SHRM offers: the SHRM Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) and the SHRM Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP). These two certifications test an individual’s Human Resources knowledge as well measuring their demonstration and application of HR competencies. Obtaining one of these certifications demonstrates a professional’s mastery in the field of Human Resources.
Assurance of Learning
The Society for Human resource Management (SHRM) offers an Assurance of Learning assessment that allows students who are earning a degree in human resources or studying human resources, to earn a certificate stating that the individual has the acquired the appropriate knowledge to be a successful HR professional. Since many students have little to no work experience in the HR field, it allows students to prove their knowledge through a test. This assessment could offer students an advantage over other entering HR professionals since it proves that they are capable of passing a comprehensive exam on human resources. Two sixty day test windows are available for students to take this assessment. To gain more knowledge about the exam, go to the SHRM website and type in “Assurance of Learning”.
