UISSHRM Places Second in CompetitionUISSHRM Students

The UIS student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (UISSHRM) completed in both the Case Competition and HR Games at the annual Illinois State Student HR Conference and Competition. The case competition provides the opportunity to develop capabilities in finding strategic solutions to real-life business issues. It also encourages relationships between students and faculty from schools around the state and provides an opportunity for industry professionals to witness future HR leaders.

UISSHRM placed second in both competitions. Two MBA students, Le Tran (second row, second from left) and Trinh Tran (second row, far right), participated.  Trinh Tran also serviced as UISSHRM Director of Information Services during the 2018-19 academic year improving the UIS Connection Competition Blackboard and several social media sites.

Donna Rogers Skowronski is the UISSHRM Faculty Advisor (second row, far left).  Donna teaches MGT 538–Strategic Human Resource Management in the HR Management Certificate and an MBA elective.
