Celebrate Drake SJMC in Des Moines, Kansas City, Chicago and Minneapolis


Current faculty, alumni, and students have many things to be proud of this year.

Join us as we celebrate our many accomplishments, including the promotion of SJMC Dean Kathleen Richardson, SJMC’s independent status on campus, a Pacemaker for Urban Plains, the new Strategic Political Communication major, Drake Magazine’s Pinnacle Award for best website, and the PR major’s CEPR accreditation—an honor earned by only 36 PR programs in the world.

Network with colleagues, learn more about how you can be involved with SJMC, and meet current students in a Midwest city near you.
