NEWBERRY, S.C., March 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Newberry College announced that it has begun a partnership with The Protocol School of Washington, the leading accredited school that provides professional, universally-accepted protocol and etiquette training. As part of the collaboration, Newberry students can enroll in a series of workshops called the Professional Success Strategies Certificate Program.

The Protocol School of Washington President and Director Pamela Eyring is now serving as an "expert-in-residence" at Newberry, leading workshops for students on etiquette and protocol, including topics such as personal and electronic communications skills, professional attire and presentation, networking, and situational courtesy and decorum. Lessons can be reviewed beyond the classroom through the Protocol School's e-learning modules, which reinforce what the students learned in class.

"Newberry provides students with a personal, transformative learning experience that prepares them to be future citizen leaders and professionals," Newberry College President Dr. V. Scott Koerwer said. "Now, our students have the opportunity to engage in top-level protocol and etiquette programs that will have significant impact in preparing them for success in the future."

The workshops, co-sponsored by the Student Government Association, were brought to campus by the career services, academic affairs and admissions departments. Upon completion of these sessions, available to students free of charge, participants receive a certificate for completing the series. Eyring is also leading professional and team development workshops for the Newberry faculty members.
