In 1968, 20 years after its own establishment, the Public Relations Society of America founded the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA). The declared purpose of PRSSA is to cultivate a favorable and mutually advantageous relationship between students and professional public relations practitioners.

Today, the Public Relations Student Society of America has more than 11,000 members in more than 300 chapters on college campuses in the U.S., Columbia, and Argentina.

The UNI chapter of PRSSA was chartered on January 18, 1981. The UNI chapter has received numerous national awards, including Outstanding Chapter, Outstanding Chapter Firm, Outstanding Newsletter, and Outstanding Web site.
