PRSSA Continues Expansion With Addition of Oakland University 

PRSSA has established a chapter at Oakland University’s Rochester, Mich., campus. This marks the ninth school in Michigan to be affiliated with PRSSA, continuing the organization’s mission to build a widespread network of students at institutions of higher learning.

“The Public Relations and Strategic Communication program at Oakland University serves its students extremely well, offering an expansive selection of classes and professional learning opportunities,” said Jeneen Garcia, executive director at PRSSA. 

Established in 1957, Oakland University serves nearly 20,000 undergraduate and graduate students, offering 130 undergraduate majors. Students at Oakland University gain diverse learning experiences that help them develop the skills necessary for successful engagement as citizens and members of their local, global and professional communities. 

The Public Relations and Strategic Communication program is part of the university’s largest academic unit, the College of Arts and Sciences, which houses 16 departments dedicated to teaching and researching liberal arts.

Dr. Chiaoning Su, assistant professor in the Department of Communications, Journalism and Public Relations, will serve as faculty adviser to the PRSSA Chapter. 

“This is a big step forward for our program,” she said. “We are excited to grow this newly granted PRSSA Chapter, which will be a promising platform to develop our students’ professional skills.”  

PRSSA is represented now on nearly 375 college campuses.
