UO PRSSA will travel to Seattle for a Professional Development Tour on May 11-12. Applications are open from April 12- 25. Click here to apply.


PRSSA Professional Development Tours take place twice per year, in the fall and spring, throughout various cities. In the past, we have visited agencies in Portland, Seattle, and San Francisco. These tours allow students to hear from various PR industry professionals, expand their professional networks and get their questions answered.

In recent years we have visited Providence Health and Services, Allison+Partners, Edelman, Maxwell PR + Engagement, CMD and Matter Communications.

All students are encouraged to apply for Professional Development Tours, however, PRSSA members have priority. Application periods and tour dates are announced each term – you can find information and applications for upcoming tours at the top of this page. Please keep in mind that costs for transportation, hotel, food and other expenses are dependent on the location of the tour.
