ELLENSBURG, Wash. - Three Central Washington University students earned a free trip to the Society for Human Resource Management
(SHRM) national collegiate championship by winning the Area V title April 12-13.
...James Nimnicht, CWU professor of management and SHRM student advisor, said a sample Area V question was: "What Supreme Court case ruled that although a test has an adverse impact against a protected group, the test is legal if it is job-related?"
(Washington vs.Davis, 1976). Nimnicht
said Central has long been recognized as having one of the leading human resource programs in the Northwest.
"Demonstrating the ability to win in head-to-head competition against Boise State University, Portland State University, the University of Washington, Western Washington University and several other universities
is particularly rewarding," he
added."We are very pleased to be able to demonstrate the quality of our students to prospective employers."
The national competition, featuring CWU
, Cornell University
, Utah State University
, Mississippi State University
, Eastern Michigan University
and one more to be determined, will also be impressive.
