About Us

In 1968, 20 years after its own establishment, the Public Relations Society of America founded the Public Relations Student Society of America

On April 4, 1968, San Jose State University became one of the nine founding chapters of PRSSA. Since its inception, the PRSSA Pearce Davies Alpha Chapter has flourished over the past 45 years at San José State University.

The chapter at SJSU sponsors a number of campus meetings, workshops, and events during the year. In addition, PRSSA members regularly attend monthly meetings of the PRSA Silicon Valley Chapter. This chapter has about 150 professionals in its membership and offers special student rates for its dinner meetings and workshops.

PRSSA’s Mission is to serve its members by enhancing their knowledge of public relations and providing access to professional development opportunities and to serve the public relations profession by helping to develop highly qualified, well-prepared professionals.
