More than 50 schools and 1,000 students are participating in the program that provides professors and students with free, unlimited access to reference materials, HR specific interactive tools and applications and valuable industry information available in Prospera. The program has helped professors enhance their curriculums, enhanced internship experiences for HR students and served as a resource for students attaining their degrees.<br /><br />Alina Smith, SHRM Student Chapter President at the University of North Texas, said, &ldquo;I&rsquo;ve learned the fundamentals of human resources from the textbook and lecture formats, but Prospera allows me to gain some hands-on experience in some of the functions that I may be responsible for in the future.&rdquo;<br /><br />Robert Keller, Chairman and CEO of J.
