About the Chapter
Chartered in 2004, the Bluegrass SHRM Student Chapter consists of students in Lexington and the surrounding areas. This includes students from Eastern Kentucky University, Georgetown College, Sullivan University, Transylvania University, Midway College, and the University of Kentucky.
Our chapter meets at different host sites in the Bluegrass Region. At each meeting, a different guest speaks about a particular hot HR topic. Students are offered the opportunity to meet HR professionals, ask questions, learn about the host company, and tour the facilities when possible. We ask that each person who plans to attend a meeting RSVP. Specific meeting and/or event information can be found below under “Announcements.”
