Vice President for University and Public Affairs will be featured on Studio One

Susan Balcom Walton, vice president for University and Public Affairs, and co-author Joel J. Campbell wrote Making it Work: Improving the Relationship between Public Relations Spokespeople & Journalists. Their book describes the sometimes unharmonious relationship between the public relations and journalism fields. Their shared goal is relaying meaningful information to the public about building good relationships. “I think the common ground is trust and ethics,” said Walton. The two address specific conflicts between the professions and how they’re trying to help others establish a better understanding of each field in the book. Walton will talk about her work on the next edition of Studio One.
