LMU DEVELOPS FIRST OF ITS KIND GOVERNMENT RELATIONS AND ADVOCACY CERTIFICATE PROGRAM
June 16, 2014 – Harrogate, Tennessee — Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) will roll out a new program aimed at preparing students for entry-level and advanced positions as lobbyists and government relations professionals in August. The Government Relations and Advocacy (GRA) Program will provide early stage lobbyists and government relations professionals with critical skills to advance and succeed with their firms and clients at the federal, state and local levels.
“There is no other program like this in the country,” said LMU President B. James Dawson. “Currently, there is no one place to give a prospective lobbyist all the skills he or she will need to be successful. This program can also be a compliment to a law degree, public administration program or it can be a precursor to legal studies.”
