The Public Relations Committee, also called the Publicity Committee, was an advisory committee of the Faculty. It was formed in 1943 to keep in touch with former and current SFA students serving in WWII. Like many other universities around the country SFA had many former and current students involved in the war effort. This was an effort on the part of SFA to keep in contact with these people providing information to them about the happenings at SFA and in East Texas as well as to keep SFA abreast of what was happening with these individuals during the war.
The Public Relations Committee was a forerunner of University Information and News Services, which as of 2011 is the Office of Public Affairs.
