Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM)

Students participate annually in the Texas SHRM student leadership conference, the HR Southwest Conference, and field trips to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.  The purpose of a field trip is to receive a presentation from the human resources (HR) director/VP of the host organization and to ask questions about HR in the organization.  The chapter is sponsored by the local professional HR chapter (Big Country Society for Human Resource Management) and students have an open invitation to attend the monthly professional chapter meetings.
