Associate Professor of Public Relations Jay Wang was named the new director of the USC Center on Public Diplomacy at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism on Wednesday.
Wang, who has worked as a consultant in international corporate communication and public diplomacy, will replace journalism professor Philip Seib, who has held the position of director since 2009.
In a statement to USC News, Wang said he will work to strengthen the centerâ€™s role in global politics and make the website into a comprehensive resource on public diplomacy.
The center was created in 2003 to further the study and practice of global public diplomacy through research, publication programs, public events and professional training. It was established through a partnership between the Annenberg School and the School of International Relations at the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences.
Wang will assume the position August.
