GVCSHRM's College Relations Programs are committed to serving the 'HR Leaders of Tomorrow' by providing the tools necessary to educate and advance the HR profession, build strong and active student chapters, and provide career guidance.

Our St. John Fisher Student SHRM Chapter recently participated in the SHRM National Case Competition in Philadelphia on April 21, 2017. Four students along with their faculty advisor competed against schools across the country and when asked to reflect on their trip this is what they had to say:

  • I learned from this experience how to work with a diverse set of people, how to apply my HR knowledge and ability to a real world problem and in a real-life context, as well as how to work with a group of people towards a common goal.
  • I signed up for the case competition because it was a great way to gain some experience as well as put a great achievement on the board for SJFC SHRM. I was not disappointed as we did an amazing job of addressing the case, representing ourselves as well as our work professionally, and working as a team through all issues big and small.
  • I learned that collaborating and integration is the key to having a successful outcome and a successful team.

Online HR Compliance Certificate Program

Mitchell Hamline School of Law is offering its online 12-week Human Resources Compliance Certificate Program for human resources generalists and compliance specialists. This program offers professionals the opportunity to learn and use a model of compliance designed to meet organizational goals while addressing the professional’s duty of care; ethical, legal, and business decision-making frameworks; and responsibilities as a driver of change in an organization.

Mitchell Hamline School of Law is an independent law school accredited by the American Bar Association and not part of a university. The law school recognizes the certificate and students who complete the program do receive a certificate.

Participants will gain an all-encompassing HR view of how to approach risk management and compliance within businesses of all sizes and receive a broad perspective through the employment life cycle to enable them to apply compliance to their work. Our online learning management system is a flexible, interactive portal that offers online discussions, practical exercises, and collaborative activities that can be completed when they fit into participants’ schedules.
