The name of the campus Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) chapter has officially been changed to the Dr. Julie Henderson Public Relations Student Society of America Chapter at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. Henderson has been PRSSA faculty adviser since 1993.
The formal process to change a chapter name has to be initiated by the student officers. Their request then must be approved by the national boards of both the Public Relations Student Society of America and PRSSA.
Since 1993, chapter teams have earned 23 national competition awards, plus numerous other chapter and individual recognitions at the national level.
Henderson, a journalism professor, also served as PRSSA National Faculty Adviser from 2009-2011. Through her efforts, the campus public relations program was certified through the Certification in Education for Public Relations (CEPR) this year, making it the only CEPR program in Wisconsin.
Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to contribute calendar items, campus announcements and other good news to UW Oshkosh Today.
