Following an AEJMC joint PR/history division session on history, I was asked to post the following information on an assignment I did last year on Wikipedia. (Luckily I still remembered how to log in.)

I set up a trip to the library with the mass communication librarian, who taught the students how to use our resources to find information about their biographical subject.
Please follow your Wikipedia contact person’s instructions and check links because it’s likely things have changed since I did this assignment more than a year ago.
I also asked students to send me a draft before they posted it on the site for feedback and suggestions.

The opportunity: Carolyn Caudell Tieger Professorship in Public Affairs Communications
Grady College is honored to announce its search for the Carolyn Caudell Tieger Professorship in Public Affairs Communications. The professorship is a singular holding for UGA, Grady, and among schools and colleges of journalism and mass communication nationally. It was created to prepare students for the essential role of communications and media at the heart of public affairs leadership. There is no other program like it. The emphasis on communications makes it distinctive.
The professorship is the vision of alumna Carolyn Tieger (ABJ ’69), a Washington public affairs communications veteran who has committed a gift of $1 million to the University through her estate for an eventual chair. The Tieger Professor will anchor the great student interest in public affairs communications careers at Grady, liaise
It's been a while since I uploaded any slides, so here's a presentation on thought leadership. I chose to focus on business-to-business examples because it seems like an overlooked area in our curriculum, and maybe even in public relations education more generally. We spent most of our time looking at examples, and a student team did a presentation with examples of thought leaders (both brands and individuals). Enjoy.
