About Us


The Human Resource Association at Indiana University (HRA-IU) has close ties with the local chapter of The Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) which is the South Central Indiana Human Resource Association (SCHIHRA). The HRA-IU works closely to develop close ties between students and working professionals that are able to help guide students. This relationship not only helps the students but it also helps bring new ideas to the professionals that are working with the students.
