Assurance of Learning

The Society for Human Resource Management's (SHRM) Assurance of Learning® Assessment for graduating HR students is the new universal benchmark for students who are completing an HR degree and who have little to no work experience in HR. It benefits students by showing employers the student has acquired the minimum knowledge required to be a successful HR professional, and it gives recent graduates an important advantage over other entry-level candidates by showing the student has achieved the Certificate of Learning upon passing an exit exam.

About the SHRM Student Chapter

The Society for Human Resource Management's Student Program was created in 1965 to promote mutually beneficial interaction between HRM students and practitioners. Since the first chapter was chartered more than 40 years ago, the student program has experienced tremendous growth. The program now includes over 450 affiliated student chapters and more than 15,000 student members.

The annual Student Chapter Merit Award program recognizes chapters for outstanding activities and programs in four broad areas:

  • Basic Student Chapter Requirements 
  • Chapter Programming and Professional Development of Members 
  • Support of the Human Resource Profession 
  • Partnership with SHRM 

All SHRM student chapters are invited to submit an entry and chapters can earn awards regardless of their size.  To learn more about the types of awards and suggestions about how to more effectively and efficiently garner an award, visit the following site:
