PRSA ICON 2020: The Corrosion of Civility

2021 Bateman Case Competition on Civility

The 2021 Bateman Case Study Competition, conducted by the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) focuses on reversing the corrosion of civility in American life and fostering more constructive and inclusive public discourse in all corners of society. Read the announcement here.

Our goal is to harness the creativity, social consciousness and cultural and intellectual diversity of our next generation of PR leaders via the historic Bateman Competition to advance the discussion of civility and mount a national strategic campaign to restore quality, integrity and inclusiveness to public discourse in all its forms, wherever it takes place.

Delta Dental of Michigan is the sponsor of the 2021 Bateman Case Study Competition, which focuses on advancing PRSA’s efforts to promote civil discourse in society. Delta Dental of Michigan sponsors the Great Lakes Civility Project and serves as a leading example of what can be done to counter incivility through public engagement and dialogue.
