Posted: Friday, March 29, 2019
University of Evansville associate professor of communications Tamara Wandel has received a 1 for All First Amendment public relations grant. She was one of 10 professors from across the country who received this grant from 1 for All, a nonpartisan educational program based at Middle Tennessee State University’s Free Speech Center.
These $2,000 grants are used to build awareness and increase understanding of the First Amendment. The grants support college public relations and strategic communications professors in giving their students hands-on PR campaign experience while building awareness and understanding of the First Amendment.
Wandel will use her grant in the fall to work with students on a PR campaign concerning the first amendment, sports, and politics.
“We’re very pleased to recognize some of the most creative professors in public relations and strategic media education, all with a commitment to ensuring that today’s college students have a clear understanding of the importance of the First Amendment to our democracy,” said Ken Paulson, director of the Free Speech Center and founder of the 1 for All educational program.
The campus PR effort is a project of 1 for All and the Free Speech Center at MTSU. The effort is completely nonpartisan and educational.
