(New Orleans)―Cathy Rogers, Ph.D., associate professor and public relations sequence head in the School of Mass Communication at Loyola University New Orleans, has been invited to serve this summer as a visiting professor at The Advertising Council in New York City. Rogers was chosen due to her work with non-profits in the community through Loyola's Shawn M. Donnelley Center for Nonprofit Communications.
The Donnelley Center assists nonprofit organizations with advertising and promotional campaigns. The program allows students to gain invaluable hands-on design, advertising, and public relations experience while providing a much-needed service to organizations that can not afford to hire professionals to promote their organization and its mission As a visiting professor, Rogers will collaborate with peers from the advertising and communications industries to create public service campaigns sponsored by the council.
The Advertising Council is a private, non-profit organization that organizes volunteers and resources to distribute critical messages to the American public. The council creates, distributes and endorses thousands of public service campaigns for non-profit organizations and government agencies on topics that include improving the quality of life for children, preventative health, education, community well being, environmental preservation and strengthening families.
