News coverage on IYLEP Social Media Institute

Our fifth VCU Social Media Institute wrapped up at the end of July and the students produced 10 social media campaigns for nonprofit organizations. This year, we also included a nonprofit client from Iraq, the organization Nature Iraq. Several news organizations published reports about the IYLEP program, including the Richmond Times-Dispatch and WTVR-CBS 6.
