PRSSA welcomes new chapter at Tulane University 

by | Apr 1, 2021

PRSSA, the foremost organization for students interested in the public relations and communications fields, announced the establishment of a Chapter at Tulane University. This marks the 11th school in Louisiana to be affiliated with PRSSA’s nearly 375 Chapters worldwide, continuing the organization’s mission to build a robust, widespread network of students at institutions of higher learning. Tamar Gregorian, Ph.D., APR, will serve as Faculty Adviser to the PRSSA Chapter.

The public relations major at Tulane University is housed in its School of Professional Advancement under the Media + Design program. Its mission is to provide students with the research and problem-solving skills necessary to create strategic, innovative, cultural and socially significant communication solutions. Upon graduation, students understand how communication can create change through design, advertising, public relations and digital media marketing.

“PRSSA is thrilled for the students at Tulane University as they establish this new Chapter that will no doubt amplify all the lessons they are already absorbing in the classroom” said Jeneen Garcia, Senior Vice President, Programs, PRSA. “Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to work with amazing students and I know this Chapter will be in good hands with Tamar who is a former PRSSA leader herself.”

Gregorian is a Professor of Practice of Public Relations & Digital Media Marketing and Communications, an award-winning communicator and principal & co-founder of YNH Consulting. Over the past 12 years, she has taught a variety of communication and public relations courses at Tulane University, as well as the University of Southern California, Loyola University New Orleans and the University of Southern Mississippi.

“I’m so excited that Tulane SoPA’s Media + Design Program was granted a charter for a PRSSA Chapter,” said Gregorian. “The opportunities that PRSSA affords students are endless – professional development, networking, career development and so much more. PRSSA shaped my own career trajectory and introduced me to so many incredible students and professionals nationwide. As a former PRSSA student turned PRSA professional turned PRSSA Faculty Adviser, it’s an honor and privilege to embark on this opportunity for our students.”

The Tulane University Chapter will be supported by PRSA New Orleans, helping foster student and professional connections by providing speakers, networking opportunities, career mentoring and other benefits.
