Nonprofits' Expectations in PR Service-Learning Partnerships
Rogers, Cathy; Andrews, Valerie
Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, v71 n1 p95-106 Mar 2016
Little scholarly evidence exists about the communication needs of nonprofit community partners and what they think constitutes an ideal service-learning (SL) relationship. This study seeks to fill this gap by identifying SL projects and relationships that best serve nonprofit community partners with communication needs. The researchers conducted a focus group and a survey with nonprofit organization staff to identify their expectations of a SL partnership and the type of partnership they prefer to meet their communication needs. This study confirms anecdotal evidence that nonprofit community partners need to be better educated about public relations and the public relations process.
