FIU PRSSA, which was established with the help of the Miami Chapter of PRSA and has currently grown to more than 50 members, is an organization that helps students develop their public relations skills, network with public relations practitioners, obtain internships and ultimately become successfully employed in the field.
Within the past decade, FIU PRSSA chapter has won many awards for its achievements including PRSSA Pacesetter Award, FIU Student Life Award, Advisor of the Year, Finalist for Chapter of the Year, and multiple recognitions for PRSSA/PRSA Relationship Month Activities.
