About NCA PRD
The NCA Public Relations Division provides an environment for public relations scholars and practitioners, as well as students, to explore how communication influences the organization–stakeholder relationship. This division welcomes research from diverse communication-based disciplinary areas and embraces a range of research methodologies, theoretical foundations, and topic areas.
The Public Relations Division promotes research, teaching, service, and ethical practice of public relations as public relations seeks to build and maintain beneficial relationships among organizations and stakeholders.
Public relations best practices that are grounded in theory are essential in the 21st century in which communication technology has created a globalized world that is bringing people and organizations closer to one another while paradoxically creating tensions resulting from this increasing proximity.
