The Winthrop University Society for Human Resource Management (WUSHRM) is the student chapter affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the national organization for career HR professionals. Our members are provided an immersive experience into Human Resources, preparing them with the resources to continue their professional development when they embark on their new careers. We engage in development activities such as resume building, mock interviews, philanthropy, fundraising, networking, attending local HR professional organization monthly meetings, and attending the annual national and state SHRM development conferences. WUSHRM is one of only a few lucky student affiliates to be supported by two local professional chapters and in different states; both the Charlotte Area SHRM (CASHRM) and Carolina’s Chapter of SHRM (CCSHRM) strongly support the success of our student members.
