Student SHRM Chapter


The Villanova University SHRM Chapter is an active group that was awarded 1 of only 10 national Outstanding Chapter Awards and has been honored numerous times with the Superior Merit Award since it was founded in 1985.

VU SHRM is run by a team of graduate students who organize and coordinate interactive programming for students in the Human Resource Development graduate program.

We initiate networking opportunities, host workplace site visits, coordinate mentoring programs, hold professional development workshops and actively volunteer in the community. Joining VU SHRM is an excellent way to jump start a career in human resources!

Members of the Villanova SHRM chapter are involved with local human resource groups, such as the Philadelphia Chapter of SHRM and Greater Valley Forge Human Resource Association, and are sponsored by National SHRM.
