What is PRSSA?

The Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) founded the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) in 1968 to cultivate a favorable and mutually advantageous relationship between students and public relations professionals.

PRSSA aims to foster the following:

  • Understanding of current theories and procedures of the profession
  • Appreciation of the highest ethical ideals and principles
  • Awareness of an appropriate professional attitude
  • Appreciation of Associate Membership in PRSA and eventually accredited membership

PRSSA's Mission:

  • To serve its members by enhancing their knowledge of public relations and providing access to professional development opportunities;
  • To serve the public relations profession by helping to develop highly qualified, well-prepared professionals.

I pledge to the Society:

To conduct myself professionally, with truth, accuracy, fairness and responsibility to the public, fellow members and to the Society; to improve my individual competence and advance the knowledge and proficiency of the field of public relations; and to adhere to the articles of the Member Code of Ethics/Conduct by the PRSSA National Committee.
