Drake public relations program achieves reaccreditation

The Drake University public relations program has been reaccredited by the Public Relations Society of America’s Certification in Education for Public Relations. The site visit occurred remotely this spring during the pandemic shutdown. Drake’s PR program, housed in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, is one of only 40 worldwide so accredited.

The site team praised the Drake curriculum and the “significant and diverse experience and scholarship” of the public relations faculty. The program was first accredited in 2014. The mission of CEPR is “the continuing improvement of public relations education to better prepare the next generation of practicing professionals.”
