ABOUT

Welcome to the official website for the University of Illinois Chapter of PRSSA! This website is dedicated to covering events of PRSSA, career opportunities, and various information about the chapter. We are a 200+ student organization sponsored by the Registered Student Organization at Illinois and are proud to be representing The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s most prominent PR organization.

Mission Statement:

The Illinois Chapter of Public Relations Student Society of America is a student-run, non-profit organization that is dedicated to bringing public relations to the Champaign-Urbana campus. Students aim to learn more about public relations through professional speakers, career workshops, case study discussions and technology training. Each year we take on real clients in order to give our members hands on PR experience. Our 2015-2016 client is Roger Ebert’s “Ebertfest” Film Festival.
