The Rutgers graduate student chapter of the National Society for Human Resource Management provides resources, services, and networking opportunities to students interested in being a part of our organization!


RUSHRM is the graduate student chapter of the National Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and is affiliated with the School of Management and Labor Relations (SMLR).  We are innovative and award-winning student chapter that is geared toward providing education, networking, and leadership programs to our members.  Between our community outreach and our professional development opportunities, our members become equipped with tools to become top-tier HR leaders.  Furthermore, our collaboration with other entities, such as Career Services and outside SHRM networking groups, has enabled its members to successfully transition from student to employee after graduation.  Our chapter not only promotes our events, but also promotes its members to the business world!

The events we host allow the students to gain a greater understanding of many topics; such as common practices and the future direction of HR, while simultaneously fostering an appreciation for diversity and the global nature of many workplaces.  Ultimately, the RUSHRM Graduate Chapter strives to prepare its members for success within the working world by encouraging out-of-the-box thinking and nurturing the success of its student members.
