The university’s campaign emerged victorious last week, earning the prestigious Silver Anvil Award, which recognizes excellence in Public Relations. The annual event honors organizations that have successfully addressed a contemporary public relations issue with exemplary professional skill, creativity and resourcefulness. Entries are evaluated on their strategic nature of public relations programs using four components — research, planning, execution and evaluation.
