PR launches department-maintained website

The Department of Public Relations launched a new website to provide timely information for its students, alumni and friends of the program.

“We are preparing our students to become strategic communication professionals and there’s no better way to practice what we preach than to develop and maintain this site,” said Kevin Trowbridge, assistant professor of public relations.

The site will be maintained by faculty and students, including associates of Tower Creative Communications, Belmont’s student-run strategic communication firm.

There are four major categories of content for the site:

  • News & Events will showcase the accomplishments of PR students, faculty and alumni. Updates will be posted on curricular and co-curricular activities. Additionally, this category will include promotion and coverage of events sponsored by the department.
  • Insights will include research-based commentary on current topics and events relevant to the study and profession of public relations.
  • People will feature profiles of students, faculty, alumni and friends of the public relations program.
  • Opportunities will include posts about service, internship and job opportunities.

Trowbridge said readers can expect a regular stream of relevant news and information beginning early in 2018.
