Do You Count? University of Oregon Gears Up For 2010 Census

Do you count? Because I sure do. This is why I am going to fill out the 2010 Census form.

Educate. Activate. Motivate. These three words are the basis of the 2010 Census’ plan to get residents living in the United States to fill out their Census forms.

The student population, especially college students,  is considered one of the Census Bureau’s “hard to count” audiences. It is vital to the success of the 2010 Census to get students involved because students have the ability to mobilize their peers and community.

Students don’t realize that a) the Census is mandatory and b) by filling out the Census you can help your local community. There is a clear public relations opportunity to promote the accessibility, convenience and confidentiality of the Census to hard-to-count audiences. By engaging these audiences, the Census will obtain an accurate count of a city’s demographic.

Connect With Me

n11519680_37469556_1031966The goal of this post is to give you insight into who I am and why I’m blogging.

My name is Amy and I’m currently studying public relations at the School of Journalism and Communication at the University of Oregon. I’m writing this blog to share my thoughts about the public relations industry.

Although I’m only representing myself in my blog, this is my attempt to connect and interact with people who may or may not share my interests.

As the author of this blog I intend to write about non-profit, global, and consumer public relations.  I will also discuss interesting trends in the industry.

As I continue in the world of public relations, I would like to eventually become engaged in corporate social responsibility, crisis communications, and green/sustainability trends. I am interested in issues concerning current trends and in issues that can better our society. Along with my public relations interests, I hope to incorporate my Spanish language skills and love for international communications.
