We’re proud to announce that our colleague and EUPRERA member Juan-Carlos Molleda, dean and professor of the School of Journalism and Communication at the University of Oregon, will receive the 2022 Institute for Public Relations Pathfinder Award for his significant and sustained contributions to the field of public relations through research, education, and leadership.

Dr. Molleda has been a pioneer of the Latin-American Communication Monitor, a EUPRERA study part of the widest global and recognized Global Communication Monitor. We are proud to remind that earlier also Dejan Verčič, member of the European Communication Monitor core team, and Ansgar Zerfass, leader of the EUPRERA Monitors, received the same recognition.

The IPR Pathfinder Award is presented annually to an individual whose published work positively impacts the profession and research community by bridging the two.  The IPR Pathfinder Award Committee comprising IPR Trustees, past winners, and academic leaders in the field recognized Molleda’s noteworthy achievements and outstanding research.
