Julie Vincent, a public relations instructor in the IU School of Journalism at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, will be inducted into the Public Relations Society of America’s College of Fellows. The school now has three full-time or adjunct faculty who have this distinction.

“This is a wonderful and well-deserved honor for Julie,” said Dan Drew, interim executive associate dean of the School of Journalism. “We are fortunate to have someone with her talent and experience serve as a role model for our public relations students.”

Vincent has taught public relations at IUPUI since 2007. She is a past president and current member of the Hoosier Chapter Public Relations Society of America and past president and current member of the Indianapolis Public Relations Society.

Bruce Hetrick, a visiting professor, and Fred Bagg, an adjunct faculty member, both in the School of Journalism, are also members of PRSA’s College of Fellows.

The College of Fellows, founded in 1989, is a community of more than 300 senior PRSA members who have advanced the public relations profession and distinguished themselves through their experience and leadership in the public relations industry. Admission is open to public relations practitioners or educators who have at least 20 years’ experience, are accredited in public relations and have demonstrated exceptional capability and accomplishment in the practice or teaching of public relations.

The new fellows will be formally inducted into the college at a special dinner Oct. 13 during the PRSA 2012 International Conference in San Francisco, Calif.
