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.
