The mission of SHRM’s Academic Initiatives (AI) Department is to help create better-prepared, entry-level HR professionals through education, experiential learning, certification and competencies.

Colleges and universities that have been approved by SHRM’s AI Department as being aligned to SHRM’s curriculum guidelines may exclusively participate in a new program. This program allows students enrolled in their final year of an HR degree program to apply for and take the SHRM-CP exam as long as they meet all student eligibility requirements.

If you are interested in aligning your college or university with SHRM’s curriculum guidelines, please provide your information below and a member of the SHRM AI team will follow-up with you.
