Description:

In September, students enrolled in the BBA and MPA programs at UAS attended the annual state-wide meeting for the Society for Human Resources Management in Anchorage, Alaska. They were accompanied by Dr. Charla Brown, Assistant Professor of Management and Faculty Advisor for the Human Resource Management emphasis area. Dr. Brown was also a conference speaker and shared insights regarding emotional intelligence in one session and change management in another. Additionally, the UAS delegation was officially recognized by SHRM's visiting national representative and enjoyed a culminating UAS student reception at the Hard Rock Cafe. This event provided participants with opportunities for professional development/networking and was sold-out months in advance with 250+ HR professionals attending from around the state and across a variety of industries. While five students were sponsored by their employers, the remaining student registration fees were funded by the UAS School of Management and travel awards were provided by a generous student outreach grant from Northrim Bank.
