[August 19, 2009]  NORMAL -- Lincoln College-Normal has entered into a formal agreement with the Society for Human Resource Management to become a partner college with SHRM. Beginning in September, individuals can enroll in guided classroom study sessions at the college's new Center for Adult Learning to prepare for certification exams offered by SHRM. Lincoln College-Normal is the only college in the central part of Illinois offering this service.

SHRM is a prestigious national organization with local chapters across the country for human resources professionals. The organization encourages development of its members through ongoing training and by offering professional accreditation. Interested human resources professionals can earn designations by completing a rigorous examination covering a body of knowledge related to current practices in the human resource profession. Upon successful completion of the exams, individuals earn a designation as Professional in Human Resources or Senior Professional in Human Resources.

"We're really proud of this partnership," said Terry Lowe, an adjunct professor in the college's business program and SHRM program coordinator. "SHRM is a prestigious organization, and by selecting LCN as a partner college, they are recognizing the high caliber of our faculty and the college's ability to meet the needs of business professionals in the region."

Questions regarding registration should be directed to Terry Lowe at 309-268-4307 or Additional information is also available at
