Becoming a member

Election to the Faculty, which was made in 1989 as part of an initiative focused on the future of public relations, is considered the pinnacle of a PR professional’s profession. College members serve in PRSA leadership positions, mentoring students and professionals, teaching, and participating in professional practice.

To qualify for admittance the public relations practitioner or teacher must have at least 20 years of experience, hold the Accredited in Public Relations credential and have shown exceptional ability and accomplishment in the practice or teaching of public relations. Fewer than 2 percent of PRSA members are accepted into the College of Fellows.

“As an academic and a PR professional, I was aware of PRSA Fellow and its demands for the application,” Kim said. “I wondered if one day I would qualify. Once I received the honor I felt joyful and humbled.”

A selection committee composed of present College of Fellows members reviewed applications and solicited and urged this year’s group of candidates to the PRSA 2016 National Board of Directors.

“The induction of Jangyul Kim to the prestigious PRSA College of Fellows sets the standard for strategic communications that deliver business results said PRSA 2016 National Chair Mark McClennan. “But he serves as sage counsel, mentor and an example for the rest of us and goes beyond simply that. I congratulate Jangyul Kim on the well-deserved honour, and ask him to continue to challenge us all to consistently strive for excellence in all we do. ”

College of Fellows purpose

The reason for the College of Fellows would be to recognize prominent public relations leaders and to further the professionalism and standing of public relations practice and education.

As the second CSU professor and first Korean American to be elected into the College of Fellows, Kim inspires young public relations professionals and students to always keep pushing towards their fantasies. “Public relations is an excellent field that enables you to create positive change through the power of communicating,” Kim said. “I firmly support talented young students to contemplate public relations as their lifetime profession.”
