Fort Hays State University will host the Kansas Society of Human Resource Management Student Summit in April 2019.

“Kansas SHRM is incredibly excited to partner with Fort Hays State University in hosting the next student summit and HR Games,” said Amanda Schmits, Kansas SHRM college relations director.

The student summit will feature seminars and speeches from human resource professionals from around the state of Kansas. Students will also network with human resource cohorts from peer institutions as well as learn from practicing HR professionals in one-on-one mentoring sessions.

The summit “offers networking opportunities with other HR students who could potentially be co-workers in the future,” said Marina Arenivas, FHSU SHRM student chapter president.

Additionally, the summit will feature the second annual Kansas HR games, a Jeopardy style trivia game that tests students’ knowledge of the functional areas of human resources. In the 2018 games, FHSU defeated both Wichita State and Kansas State teams en route to a third-place finish.

“The HR games offers a unique opportunity for HR students throughout Kansas to apply in-class learning and showcase their understanding of the basic body of HR knowledge,” Schmits said.
