At the end of June we had the opportunity to have an in-person meeting with the members of the Jesuit Networking research coordination team at the America Magazine headquarters in New York City. It was a wonderful opportunity to get to know each other a bit more and work together to establish the research criteria and topics that will help to guide Jesuit Networking research in the coming months. We will soon be updating our website to launch a call for papers that will clarify these criteria and encourage researchers to become involved. Thanks to Tina Facca at John Carroll University and Kevin Ahern from Manhattan College for their time and support in the building of this project.

One of the first group of people who reacted to the Jesuit Networking Initiative was a group from the Boler School of Business at John Carroll University, in Cleveland. This jesuit university has an exciting group of people interested in marketing and quantitative analysis. Tina Facca, one of our bloggers, is the professor leading all this effort that has been of great support to our work since the very beginning. Last week we have the chance of visiting John Carroll and work for a couple of days without the need of “digital mediation.”
Tina and her team are really engaged with the preparation of the next WUJA meeting and the promotion of all kind of Jesuit Networking initiatives. She is a key player in the Jesuit Networking Research Group and she is open to put her resources in order to service our common mission, specially helping with market analysis, feasibility studies, and quantitative analysis for non-profits within the jesuit world. We are really grateful to Tina and John Carroll University for their generosity.
