Public Relations Student Society of America (or PRSSA) is the UTSA chapter of a larger national society, which in turn is the student version of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). It's a pre-professional organization for students majoring in Communication with a concentration in Public Relations. Recently, PRSSA has hosted the A Signature is Life organ donor drive, brought PR professionals to campus for speed networking in A Night with the PRo's, and has participated in football tailgating.[1]

Its faculty advisor is Dr. Kim Kline,[2] who specializes in Intercultural Communication, New Media, Health, Women’s Studies, Popular Media.[2] The chapter is called the Steven R. Levitt chapter after the former Department of Communication chair.

In 2002,[3] 2003,[4] 2004,[5] 2007,[6] and 2009,[7] the chapter fielded teams that received honorable mention in the PRSSA national Bateman Case Study Competition. Member Kristy Pacheco won Ms. UTSA 2003.
