The Public Relations Society of America named David Dozier, public relations professor in the San Diego State University School of Journalism and Media Studies, its Outstanding Educator for 2008 during the PRSA 2008 International Conference, Oct. 27, in Detroit.
Dozier is well known for mentoring students in the undergraduate and graduate public relations programs in the School of Journalism and Media Studies. He also coordinates an accelerated master's degree program for public affairs officers in the military.
Dozier also enjoys a reputation for eliciting collective groans from math-averse public relations students required to take his statistical analysis and research methodology courses.
"Winning the Outstanding Educator Award is a real thrill," Dozier said. "In a competition like this, I realized I was competing against the best public relations professors in the U.S.
"But, the truth is, this award is not an individual accomplishment. Much of the credit goes to my affiliation with SDSU, which has one of the top public relations programs in the country."
Earlier this year, Dozier received the Alumni Association Award for Outstanding Faculty Contributions for the College of Professional Studies and Fine Arts, also known as the Faculty Montys.
