YSU opens communications center

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) —  The Youngstown State University Communications Department is reaching out to the business community.

Professors and students on Monday opened their new consulting center, ConneX. It will offer training on a variety of subjects, including presentation and public speaking, media and public relations writing, and social media.

“A lot of people have small businesses and those non-profits don’t have the wherewithal to experiment with social media. So they can come to us for training. We get them up and running and send them on their way,” said YSU Communications Chair Dr. Adam Earnheardt.

ConneX also will host communication boot camps.
