SHRM Academically Aligned

SHRM alignment symbolAs of October 2021, University of Southern Indiana’s HR concentration in the Management major is aligned with the Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM) HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates. Throughout the world, over 500 programs in approximately 425 educational institutions have been acknowledged by SHRM as being in alignment with its suggested guides and templates. The HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates were developed by SHRM to define the minimum HR content areas that should be studied by HR students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The guidelines -- created in 2006 and revalidated in 2010, 2013 and 2017 -- are part of SHRM’s Academic Initiative to define HR education standards taught in university business schools and help universities develop degree programs that follow these standards.

What does this mean for our students? Students are eligible to apply for the SHRM-CP exam in their senior year (provided they meet SHRM’s student eligibility requirements.) Earning the SHRM-CP credential sets you apart and conveys that you have the knowledge and experience to be an effective HR professional.
