Society for Human Resource Management

Society for Human Resource Management Logo

SHRM is a national and international association dedicated to human resource management.

The association's missions are to 'serve the needs of human resource professionals by providing the most essential and comprehensive resources available' and 'to advance the human resource professional to ensure that HR is recognized as an essential partner in developing and executing organizational strategy.

Students involved in the chapter will be eligible for scholarships, internships, networking, training, jobs, and possibly mentoring. Since the association is national and international, students may attend conferences and meet with professionals outside the University.


As of March 6, 2021, Frostburg State University aligned its Bachelor of Science in Business Administration w/concentration in Human Resource Management program with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates. Throughout the world, over 500 programs in approximately 425 educational institutions have been acknowledged by SHRM as being in alignment with its suggested guides and templates. The HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates were developed by SHRM to define the minimum HR content areas that should be studied by HR students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The guidelines -- created in 2006 and revalidated in 2010, 2013 and 2017 -- are part of SHRM’s Academic Initiative to define HR education standards taught in university business schools and help universities develop degree programs that follow these standards.
