Jesuit College Media Advisers

By Steve Byers

Last week, I attended the inaugural meeting in New York of what we’re calling the Jesuit College Media Advisers. This group has formed, as its mission statement goes, “to assist member advisers and student media in their work at Jesuit colleges and universities. JCMA serves as a collaborative resource for its members to succeed in the Jesuit tradition of social justice and ethical decision-making.”

Ten of us met in person and Jason Young, adviser at St. Louis University, participated over a phone line. Besides myself and Springer, attending were Tom Nelson of Marymount, Jim Simon of Fairfield, John Kabentzis of Gonzaga, Scott Walsh of the University of Scranton, Beth Knobel of Fordham’s Rose Hill campus, Elizabeth Stone of Fordham’s Lincoln Circle campus (where we met), Bob Noll of John Carroll, and Raymond Schroth of St. Peter’s College. Eighteen other people have expressed an interest —including Kimberly Zawada of Marquette—and are participating in the Internet discussions but couldn’t attend the meeting.

It’s an important group, and gives Marquette a conduit to other Jesuit college and university student media advisers that will only grow in importance in helping us fulfill Marquette’s mission through student media.

Steve Byers is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Journalism at Marquette University’s Diederich College of Communication.
