The UMass PR Club is the pre-professional organization focused on giving students opportunities and education related to the public relations field. Our mission is to serve our members by enhancing their knowledge of public relations, increasing networking opportunities and providing access to professional development opportunities.
The UMass Journalism Public Relations Student Club was founded in September 2019 by Senior Lecturer Jennie Donohue, director of the Public Relations curriculum and club advisor.
During its inaugural year, the Club elected its first executive board, hosted multiple in-person and virtual guest speakers, conducted networking and content marketing workshops, as well as served as one of only three universities nationwide to partner with HubSpot on a pilot initiative giving students access to and training related to the company’s marketing platforms. The Club had more than 65 members by the end of April 2020.
