The Jandoli School of Communication is committed to continuing the tradition established more than 70 years ago by the late Dr. Russell J. Jandoli, who taught generations of aspiring journalists the tenets of good writing and instilled respect and admiration for the practice of journalism.
Jandoli worked as a reporter for Time magazine and served as editor of publications at the War Department in Washington, D.C. He founded the Department of Journalism at St. Bonaventure in 1949 and ran it for 34 years. The program was elevated to school status and named for its founder in 1995.

Institute probes the intersection of media & democracy
The Jandoli Institute was created in 2019 to explore today’s media landscape through research studies, op-ed articles, social media, speaking engagements, commentary, analysis and other platforms.
“A healthy democracy requires a healthy media, so it is important to identify and explore ways to ensure that the media continues to play a constructive role in our nation’s democracy," said Dr. Richard Lee, associate professor of communication and the institute’s executive director.
The institute is named for the late Dr. Russell J. Jandoli (pictured), who founded the Department of Journalism at St. Bonaventure in 1949.
