A team of LER/HRER students recently travelled to Covington, KY, just outside Cincinnati, to compete in the 2015 Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) Center Regional Student Conference and Case Competition.

As defending Northeast Regional Champions, the team spent countless hours preparing for the competition, including a number of practice sessions where LER faculty played the roles of judges and provided feedback to the team members.

Whereas the team, this year, did not advance to the final round, the conference provided students with several professional development opportunities including workshops, career development mentoring, and networking.

The students’ trip was completely funded by alumni gifts to the School of LER.
