Mason Joins PRCA's University Program

George Mason University has joined PRCA, the world largest professional public relations body, representing more than 35,000 PR professionals in 35 countries. As part of this new relationship, #MasonCOMM will serve on PRCA’s new International University Advisory Group which is seeking to strengthen ties between PR pros and academics and students.

“We are honored to serve with such an elite group seeking real action and real results. The mission is to build bridges for students with the real world and to link academics with working professionals – and that’s a mission that is at the heart of #MasonCOMM,” said Professor Suzanne Lowery Mims, who was invited to join the new initiative. Professor Sergey Samoylenko will represent #MasonCOMM on the panel.

PRCA membership benefits extend to all Mason students, faculty, and staff for the duration of employment and undergraduate or postgraduate courses. To access all the membership benefits, students and staff members must register on the PRCA website, by using their university email address.

The advisory group is made up of 30 university faculty from around the globe, including Great Britain and Western Europe, Pakistan, Singapore, South Africa, and the Americas.
