Counselors to Higher Education Section

The Counselors to Higher Education (CHE) Section is a community of senior-level communications leaders and aspiring leaders who serve higher education institutions. Through in-person programs, publications and webinars, this specialized group of nearly 600 members shares knowledge, analysis and trends so that Section members have the tools they need to serve as strategic public relations and communication leaders for their college or university. This network of peers will help you promote the value, power and appropriate role of public relations to your institution’s stakeholders.

John Morgan, Associate Vice President for Public Relations at Quinnipiac University, says, “Joining a Section has been one of the best decisions of my professional career as it has allowed me to amass a fantastic network of higher education colleagues from across the country.”

If you are already a PRSA member and looking to join this Section mid-year, please call the Member Services department at (212) 460-1400 or email: membership@prsa.org.
