Pasaquan Director Mike McFalls Co-curates Exhibit Opening in New York

Mike McFalls, director of Pasaquan, and Annie Moye, Pasaquan Preservation Society chair, are co-curating a St. EOM exhibit that opens September 26 in New York. The co-curators will use research and art collected in the Columbus State University Archives, and they were assisted by CSU student intern, Yun Praught.

“Yun’s assistance in managing the collection has been instrumental with her work ensuring much of the collection is easily accessible,” said David Owings, university archivist. “This greatly facilitated the selection of works for the upcoming exhibit, but more broadly helps open the collection to other researchers who may be interested in Pasaquan.”

“Because of Yun, we were able to select and locate images, identify sizes, and more in a timely manner and with ease,” said Moye. “The CSU Archives staff was also supportive and helped us prepare certain works for public display.”

The Pasaquan exhibit will be the first exhibit in a new space called 1B, which is located in New York City’s East Village. Owned by Institute 193 in Lexington, Kentucky, 1B will focus on bringing southern artists to the attention of the art world.

The paper goes further to highlight key projects and outcomes for community partners, Communication students, and the faculty who contribute to NPACE’s success.

The Journal of Community Engagement and Higher Education, now in its tenth year, offers one of the strongest avenues for publishing interdisciplinary research and commentary on ways in which institutions of higher education embrace the larger mission to serve the needs of their communities.

McCollough and Thomas Named Rising Stars in the Community by Young Professionals and Columbus and the Valley Magazine

Associate professors Dr. Chris McCollough (Communication) and Dr. Joy Thomas (Health and Excercise Science) have been named among five 2018 Rising Stars in the Community by the Greater Columbus Georgia Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals and Columbus and the Valley Magazine.  The recognition is meant to identify a rising group of young leaders in the community who are helping to enhance the quality of civic, economic, and community life in the region. Both McCollough and Thomas do so in their respective fields, and have a healthy history of collaboration that brings them to this shared achievement.

Dr. McCollough earned the recognition for his past and current work in bringing his public relations classes into the community and working with many of the nonprofit organizations that collaborate with the Department of Communication and the Non Profit and Civic Engagement (NPACE) Center. Among the key projects he and his students have completed have been collaboratively promoting Pasaquan, helping Marion County revitalize its economic prospects through promotions and community relations, supporting the university’s current collaborative partnership with Muscogee County’s School District, and ongoing work with organizations like Ferst Foundation for Early Childhood LiteracyFeeding the ValleyThe American Cancer Society, and Habitat for Humanity.

Dr. Thomas’s work shares a parallel in bringing her classes into the community as her students in health and exercise science address issues of community health disparity. Her efforts in bridging gaps in community health disparity have led her to serving as the Director of the Center for Healthy Disparity and Community-Based Research. The center offers support in helping underserved counties in Georgia to meet community health needs in diverse ways through collaborative work with local non-profit organizations. Thomas and her staff have recently expanded to providing support to 28 counties in 2018 from the 16 counties previously served. The work of the center opens learning opportunities for her students in the classroom and through individual internships.

Mentioned earlier, McCollough and Thomas have collaborated in the past and continue to do so now. In 2015, they partnered with professor Rylan Steele in the Art Department to support and promote the Big Brother, Big Sisters mentorship program of the local Boys and Girls Club through participation in the mentorship program, photovoice documentation of the work of students with participants in the program, and putting on an exhibition of the photography in UpTown Columbus, which students promoted and put on to the public.

Recently, McCollough and Thomas built on their past collaboration to get together with professor Nicholas McMillan in the Art Department to provide support to one of the many counties Thomas supports through on site health disparities and public relations coursework, while also providing a fresh face to the Center through the work of graphic design students, and allowing students to build experience in venue design, organization promotion, and event planning and promotion.

The shared work of the colleague’s three classes will go live in fall 2018, and represents the kind of interdisciplinary collaboration among faculty unique to CSU that yield results which improve community life in the region. McCollough and Thomas continue to collaborate and are working to identify additional projects which will no doubt keep them at the forefront of working to improve community life in the region.

McCollough to Present on Creel Commission and Modern Media Practice at WWI Symposium

Dr. Chris McCollough, Associate Professor of Communication, will be presenting scholarship on the impact of the Creel Commission on modern public relations, advertising, and popular media at the WWI Armistice and Aftermath Symposium at Michigan Tech University in late September. The study is a direct result of advanced research Dr. McCollough has done for his upcoming summer course “ITDS 1145: The Art and Science of World War I Propaganda – Then and Now.”

His manuscript “Propaganda as Public Relations Antecedent: The Complex Legacy of the Creel Commission” looks at the positive and negative impacts of the Creel Commission’s work in turning the public tide from opposition to full support of America’s WWI effort through the lens of the 4 Minute Men campaign. Last studied in 1975, McCollough wants to update a recently growing body of research on public relations work resulting from the war effort by looking at how the speaking tour measures up to contemporary public relations practices.

The manuscript will be part of a two-day Symposium at Michigan Tech that will include period performances, speeches, cuisine, entertainment and scholarship focused on discussing the broader impact of WWI over the century since the end of the Great War. The program includes artists, historians, social scientists, and political scientists. Those presenting research, including McCollough, will be invited to contribute a chapter to an edited volume for publication following the conference.

McCollough Published in Top Public Relations Education Journal

Dr. Chris McCollough, Columbus State University professor of communication, has been published in the latest issue of the Journal of Public Relations Education. The study examines the impact of using competition in the traditional public relations campaigns class. McCollough found that the use of direct competition between student teams yields stronger student projects, a better knowledge of best practices in public relations work, and a better result for client partners in the community.

McCollough reviewed four separate public relations campaigns classes taught between 2012 and 2015 to compile a comparative analysis. He reviewed student project books, clients’ weekly reports on experiences with students, and teaching evaluations over the four courses to determine the overall impact on student experience, performance, and outcomes for all involved.

The Journal of Public Relations Education is a national publication of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication and its Public Relations Division. The journal, which began publication in 2015, is the successor for the previously long-running Teaching Public Relations Monographs.

McCollough Wins Second Consecutive National Award for Top Teaching Paper

Dr. Chris McCollough, communications professor at Columbus State University, recently earned his second consecutive Wilcox Award. His paper titled, “Visionary Public Relations Coursework: Assessing Economic Impact of Service Learning in Public Relations Courses,” was recognized as the Top Teaching Paper in Public Relations at the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication’s 2018 national conference.

The study is the product of McCollough’s evaluation of 30 months of economic impact from a year-long, comprehensive service learning project that he and students in his public relations campaigns, public relations management, and senior internship courses conducted on behalf of CSU’s Pasaquan, the Georgia Department of Economic Development, the Marion County Chamber of Commerce, and the town of Buena Vista, Ga. from the fall of 2015 until the Spring of 2017.

Among the findings was that his students’ recommendations and project work have helped the partnership between CSU and Marion County’s Chamber of Commerce to advance major grant awards for community revitalization projects, the establishment of eight news businesses, discussion of seven additional new businesses, the largest growth in housing permit applications in the past decade, a steady tax revenue increase in the region since the fall fiscal quarter of 2016, and a 4 percent drop in unemployment in Marion County.

“It is a rare honor to be the first to win a second consecutive Wilcox Award among so many great colleagues across the country, and to do so at a major conference like AEJMC,” said McCollough. “It is a wonderful case study about the work of my students, our program’s learning model, and the potential impact it can have in improving civic, economic, and community life in our region.”

McCollough will present his paper and be recognized for his accomplishment at the annual meeting of AEJMC in August in Washington, D.C.

Professor Sallie Averitt Miller Published in the Georgia Association of Teacher Educators Journal

An article co-authored by Professor Sallie Averitt Miller, Associate Dean for Assessment and Accreditation at Columbus State University’s College of Education and Health Professions, was recently published in GATEways to Teacher Education, a peer-reviewed online journal of the Georgia Association of Teacher Educators (GATE).

The article describes the processes used to identify essential assessment criteria, as suggested by Georgia school systems and educator preparation providers, as well as the procedures used to create the Professional Behaviors and Dispositions Assessment (PBDA). Offered to school systems and teacher education programs, PBDA is intended to guide teacher candidates as they develop and refine their professional behaviors and dispositions. In addition, the PBDA may be easily adapted for use with in-service teachers.

The PBDA can be accessed in the published article titled “The Development and Implementation of the Professional Behaviors and Dispositions Assessment.” Several universities have uploaded the copyrighted instrument to their assessment software systems.
