Students working in the Donnelley Center

About Us

The Shawn M. Donnelley Center for Nonprofit Communications is a student-run agency that gives students real-world experience in public relations, design, advertising, event and strategic planning by working with nonprofits, within the Greater New Orleans community, to create integrated marketing communications solutions.

Shawn M. Donnelley's goal was to establish a workspace where students could work in their preferred field under faculty supervision on communication projects for nonprofit organizations.

The Donnelley Center was founded in 1996 by Shawn M. Donnelley.
