Apply to be a part of the College of Journalism and Mass Communications' award-winning Bateman Case Study Competition Team during the 2021-2022 academic year. The competition will put your skills to the test in a real-world challenge to create a public relations campaign to have a positive impact. Applications for the 2021-2022 competition team are closed.

Big Rewards

Channel your good works for this real-world PR opportunity that allows you to research, plan, implement, and evaluate your campaign right here on campus and in our community. You’ll join the ranks of previous CoJMC Bateman teams whose social cause campaigns have earned top-3, top-16 and top-20 national finishes in the College’s five years of competing.

Big Commitment

Participation in the Bateman PR Competition (ADPR 339/439) spans portions of the fall and spring semester:

  • Oct. 14 through early December (1 hour per week): when the team will complete the campaign research and strategy;
  • Jan. 13 through early May (3 course credits):  when the team will create and implement campaign tactics, assess overall campaign effectiveness and send in an overall campaign book.

Do Good

Previous Bateman campaigns have addressed social issues related to diversity in public relations, childhood cancer, mental health, student veterans and affordable housing. You can learn more about the Bateman Competition on the national PRSSA website.
