2018 State System Collegiate Media Summit Hosted by Journalism and Public Relations Department

Posted on 9/13/2018 9:02:58 AM

The IUP Journalism and Public Relations Department will host the 2018 Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education Collegiate Media Summit on October 20–21 in the Hadley Union Building on the IUP campus. 

Everyone from the IUP community is welcome to attend. Registration is $30 and includes participation in the day-and-a-half-long summit, which includes up to four meals!

The plenary session speaker is 21-time Emmy Award-winning journalist Wendy Bell of Pittsburgh. More than 20 IUP Journalism and Public Relations Department alumni (including two Pulitzer Prize winners) will participate in panel discussions throughout the day. All guests are invited to a networking/etiquette dinner Saturday night in the Blue Room of Sutton Hall.

Although most of the topics will be led by journalism, public relations, and communication professionals, all members of the IUP community will benefit from their presentations.

You may register for this event, which is being presented as part of this year’s Free Speech Project at IUP; or, for more information, call the Journalism and Public Relations Department at 724-357-4411.

Our goal is to register 200 participants; please encourage your students to attend and help us to spread the word.
