Thank you for your interest in the Texas State University Public Relations Society of America (PRSSA) Mentor Program! You must be enrolled in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication (SJMC) and be a member of PRSSA to participate.
Your commitment is for one semester running now through April 2015. The requirements include meeting with your mentor at least twice per semester and completing an evaluation form. Of course, there is no limit on how much time you can spend with a mentor as schedules allow. Please complete this form and email to Grace Capwell, Lecturer and Professional Advisor to PRSSA, by Feb. 27, 2015. By phone, contact her at: 512/310-2065.
To better match you with the right mentor, please describe your communications experience, your preference, if any, for a mentor from a PR agency or an organization and any areas of interest or specialization (e.g. crisis communications, international, lifestyle, hospitality, non-profit, public affairs, technology sector, etc.).
Would you be willing to participate in promotional opportunities like a photo and video with your mentor? By highlighting your participation, we could grow the program and recruit new mentors. SJMC continues to grow and the PR sequence is the largest in the school.
