          Professional Advisory Board

          Members of the Department of Journalism and Public Relations' Professional Advisory Board often return to campus to participate in lectures and panels on topics of relevance to the media and public relations industries.

          The Professional Advisory Board provides guidance to faculty in the Department of Journalism and Public Relations on curricular matters, as well as on the operation of our campus media organizations and PRSSA chapter. The board – most of whom are graduates of Edinboro University – also serves as an important resource for potential internship sites and external funding opportunities.
