Journalism Students Survey Indiana’s Image

The Journalism Department’s Problem-solving in Public Relations class will be working with borough officials this spring to develop a public relations plan for Indiana.

“Public relations is simply communicating among many different publics to discover mutually beneficial relationships,” said Dr. Michele Papakie, the IUP Journalism professor who teaches the class. Her students, she said, will work as advocates of the borough to ensure it has a strong public image.

Throughout January, workshops and focus groups will be asked to review the borough’s public image. Borough leaders are also asking Indiana residents to complete an eighteen-question survey posted on the Indiana borough’s website.
