Kent State HR Association

The Kent State HR Association is a student affiliate group to The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management. We are also the university student HR organization aligned with the local SHRM professional chapter, the Portage County HR Association (PCHRA).

We support SHRM’s mission to advance the human resource profession to ensure that HR is recognized as an essential partner in developing and executing organizational strategy.

As a student organization, we are committed to providing social and professional networking and service opportunities to our members.  We bring HR professionals from our local chapter on campus to engage with our members as well as work with organizations in the local area to better the community.

Although our focus is on human resource majors, you are not obligated to be an HR major to join our organization.  There is no minimum GPA or class standing requirement to be a member.  The HR Association meets bi-monthly to provide educational programs and social activities.   

Check out our website to find more information on our members, meetings and events.
