Jandoli School students broadcast the university’s Division I games on ESPN+.
Students work as part of the ESPN family, in front of and behind the camera, directing and producing live sporting events with the latest HD equipment.
A group of St. Bonaventure students even went to Atlanta to cover Super Bowl LIII, and others covered NCAA men’s basketball tournament games in Dayton and Dallas.
TAPinto Greater Olean is a hyper-local news outlet staffed by students in the Jandoli School's Journalists' Workshop courses. It features reporting by St. Bonaventure students on news that happens in Olean, Allegany, Hinsdale, Franklinville, Cuba and other nearby municipalities.
TAPinto is a network of 80 locally owned and operated news sites in New Jersey, New York and Florida with more than 9 million readers. TAPinto members are provided with ongoing technical support, as well as editorial and advertising tutorials and training.
St. Bonaventure was the first university to buy a TAPinto website franchise, and launched TAPinto Greater Olean in 2016. All franchisees have access to the entire TAPinto network, and SBU students have had stories posted on other TAPinto sites.
The Jandoli Institute is a research center in the Jandoli School that focuses on the intersection of media and democracy. It explores today's media landscape through research studies, op-ed articles, social media, speaking engagements, commentary, analysis and other platforms.
"The growth of the internet and social media have radically altered the manner in which news and information are gathered, reported and consumed. Because a healthy democracy requires a healthy media, 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 the institute's founding executive director, Dr. Richard Lee, an associate professor in the Jandoli School.
The Jandoli Institute website features articles from Jandoli School faculty, alumni and students, as well as contributions from scholars outside the St. Bonaventure community.
