UA Little Rock Human Resource Society

SHRM logoThe UA Little Rock HR Society works to advance student understanding of human resource issues and provides networking opportunities with local human resource managers. The Society is affiliated with the Central Arkansas Human Resource Association (CAHRA) as well as with the international Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). All majors are invited.

Because we are affiliated with SHRM, The HR Society is governed by SHRM rules, while being administered by students. Providing programs and activities for all UA Little Rock majors, members have access to local human resource leaders, scholarships, and information useful within their fields of study through the SHRM website. Our affiliation with CAHRA also provides networking with local human resource managers. Submit your application to join.
