About Our Chapter
We are the Frank Winston Wylie Chapter of The Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) at Cal State Long Beach. Since the establishment of our chapter in 1972, we acknowledge Frank Winston Wylie for his dedication and great impact on our chapter and public relations curriculum we continue to follow.
Since arriving to CSULB in 1986, Frank Wylie contributed excellent representation of the public relations option, as well as its students to the Journalism Department university administrators. He also insisted on the highest ethical and professional standards, and restructured the public relations curriculum. He wasn't only a faculty advisor, PRSSA advisor, PRSA liason and PR Option Head and Instructor, but he was also a mentor and dear friend.
PRSSA continues to thrive as a well-known organization for students who are interested in pursuing Public Relations, Business Communications and Marketing. It's not about who you know, but who knows you. For more information on PRSSA, log onto http://www.prssa.org.
We strive to open doors for young professionals seeking a career in the public relations and communications field by advocating great standards for public relations education, ethical principles and diversity in the profession.
Members can obtain knowledge that can't be learned in a classroom and have hands-on PR experience that can be used for their professional portfolio. Along with these benefits are networking opportunities, leadership skills, volunteer opportunities, invitations to the PRSSA National Conference and regional conferences, internship opportunities, scholarship opportunities and much more.
