Monmouth College Public Relations Program

The Monmouth College Public Relations Program has a continued commitment to program evaluation, in keeping with the "E" in RACE public relations program cycles.  Please take less than three minutes to complete the online survey, see link below.  The results are reported anonymously back to the program coordinator.

We are also is in the process of developing an alumni webpage, and would love to know what people are doing. The information posted on this webpage will inform students interested in pursuing a public relations major of possible career choices. It will also educate them on how to best utilize all that Monmouth College and the Public Relations Program offer to students. In addition, it may serve as a networking device for upperclassmen. The webpage would also provide a great opportunity for you to see what fellow CATA alumni have been involved with and perhaps provide a means for you to reconnect with them.  The information from the included questionnaire will be posted on the alumni website.  You name, as an alumnus will be included, only if you include it in the last question. 

By filling out this questionnaire you will be significantly assisting Monmouth College, current, and future public relations students. Your participation is greatly appreciated by the Monmouth College Public Relations Program.
