School Relations Committee

Chairs: Markus Smith (UW Bothell) and Abbigail Lam (LWIT)
Supporting Board Member: Prema Krishnan

Our mission
Is to reach out to and work with students who are new emerging HR professionals or transitioning into HR from another carrier field. We focus on exposing them to the feature-rich resource that is LWHRA and assisting them in becoming active in our chapter.

A new name with an expanded mission!
In 2017 our name changed from College Relations to School Relations Committee (SRC).

Why?
The name was changed to reflect our expanded mission, as we are broadening our reach into graduate schools, online universities, continuing education programs, and high schools.

How?
By Co-sponsoring an organizational development workshop with the Organization Systems Renewal Graduate Program at Bainbridge Graduate Institute, launching an online student chapter with Washington Governors University, attending career fairs in the local high schools.

The SRC mission is exciting this year and we are having a great time making it happen.
