From Turmoil to Triumph: Crisis Communications Tactics for Town & Gown
Controversies today are tried in the Court of Public Opinion more often than in the Court of Law. Whenever you’re dealing with a hot-button issue, your news can easily go viral in moments.

Why Attend the ITGA Conference?
ITGA has become my “home” association. Each year I enjoy attending the University and Community Relations Conference. The fellowship with colleagues is great but the relevant learning that takes place makes it so worth it. I encourage researchers in public administration, educational leadership, and other related fields to consider this conference as a source of sharing your scholarship and professional experience.
