Public Affairs Communications Program
Carolyn Caudell Tieger Fellowship in Public Affairs Communications
The Tieger Fellowship builds upon Grady College’s first in the nation Public Affairs Communications (PAC) Program by providing students with the opportunity to take on real-world responsibilities consistent with the mission of the program.
The Tieger Fellows are responsible for day-to- day efforts to promote Grady’s Public Affairs Communications Program. The fellows work under guidance from Joseph Watson, Jr., program director and Carolyn Caudell Tieger Professor of Public Affairs Communications.
The fellows work to promote Grady College’s novel PAC program, which provides students with practical training in the strategy and practice of public affairs communications focused on public policy and politics.
The Tieger Fellowship is funded with support from Grady College alumna Carolyn Caudell Tieger, who graduated in 1969 and who also funds the Tieger Professorship currently held by Watson.
