Teaching

The Teaching Committee of the Public Relations Division aims to arrange programming and record member accomplishments in the four areas of curriculum, leadership, course content and teaching methods, and assessment. The committee distributes communications about teaching initiatives, supports the teaching paper process at the annual conference and encourages members to report other teaching accomplishments.
