to meet Sept. 27-28


The Baird Pulitzer Lecture by Anna Quindlen and a panel discussion on "Politics, Public Relations and the Public Interest" will headline the Elon University School of Communications Advisory Board meeting Sept. 27 and 28. Leading professional communicators from across the United States will convene for the biannual meeting.

Sophomore Communications Fellows and faculty and staff members will host a luncheon for board members in Studio B Sept. 27.

Board members will give input for the School's next five-year plan. They will also attend Pulitzer-winner Anna Quindlen's Q-A session in Whitley and her fall convocation lecture in Alumni Gym.

Advisory Board members will meet with the Student Advisory Board for the School of Communications Sept. 28. They will conduct mock interviews with students, visit classrooms and attend College Coffee.
