B:SOCIAL  IS A CIVIC MEDIA RESEARCH COLLABORATIVE AT SAINT JOSEPH’S UNIVERSITY THAT PARTNERS WITH NON-PROFITS TO MAKE POSITIVE SOCIAL CHANGE.  

If you are a non-profit organization or social entrepreneur making positive social change in the Philadelphia area and throughout the country—we want to learn with you. We work with our clients to understand the current social media landscape. We provide consulting and training in social media platforms, strategies and analytics free of charge.

The Beautiful Social Research Collaborative consists of students and faculty in the Department of Communication Studies. Students enrolled in COM 441 Social Media and Community Engagement and COM 442 Nonprofit Communications become consultants for the enterprise. Students in the course study advanced topics in social media research and apply current theories and practices through semester-long team-based projects designed in collaboration with community partners.

A generous grant from the John Cardinal Foley Program for Media and Civic Engagement supports the collaborative and the work of student fellows who mentor the project teams. Foley Fellows also work with community partners to ensure that our  projects are successful. The Fall Foley Fellows are Caitlin Gillard, Carly Montecalvo, and Abbey Piro.

Aimée Knight, associate professor in the Department of Communication Studies, directs the collaborative.
