Tim Ziaukas, a professor of public relations (PR), is director of the PR program and teaches courses in PR, journalism, communications and popular culture at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.
Teaching at Pitt-Bradford since 1994, Tim believes that public relations is, in many ways, the characteristic profession of our time. "We're really managers of communications. We're story tellers, and every company, product, or service has to tell its story to a variety of groups," he explains. "In Pitt-Bradford's PR program, you learn how to be efficient and ethically-sound story-tellers in the face of budget-conscious clients, a welter of media, and activist consumers. Public relations is an exciting and growing profession."
Tim is a native of Pittsburgh.
