After a hard work of selection, recruitment and incorporation of members, the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) accredited the PRSSA Chapter of Universidad de San Martín de Porres- Peru in October 2014.
Since then, the members of the new chapter have designed and planned the start of operations through the compliance with the regulations of PRSSA.
In that year, the efforts of the Chapter resulted in PRSSA´s recognition of PR USMP firm, a National Affiliated Firm which gives its members the opportunity to guide public and private organizations providing services of research and strategic planning in Public Relations.
In 2017, the Peruvian Chapter won the opportunity to present to more than 200 people in the PRSSA 2017 National Conference (Boston, Massachusetts) after having nominated the Chapter Development Session. In the same event, PRSSA USMP was awarded the Star Chapter Award, a prize that represents a high quality standard for the Chapters that seek to achieve excellence.
In 2018, the USMP Chapter of PRSSA organized the first Regional Conference of PRSSA in Latin America, marking a milestone in the history of the most important student organization in the continent.
The members have been consolidating their knowledge about theory and practice of Public Relations through seminars, lectures and workshops given by specialists in the discipline. Moreover, the members have made up a team of students of the program of Communication Sciences from Universidad de San Martín de Porres, who feel enthusiastic and identified with the organization and the practice of Public Relations.
