    In an effort to keep up with recent digital streaming trends, all Video Project Institute projects are now available to stream online.

    “We wanted a central location for all of the Video Institute projects for anyone who wants to see them. We encourage people to visit our Vimeo page and peruse our projects,” said Dr. Barbara J. Irwin, Professor of Communication Studies and Co-Founder of the Video Institute.

    All of the documentaries, service-oriented projects, and episodes of Kaleidoscope can be found on our Vimeo page here.

    To get you started, watch our latest student documentary from the Spring 2018 semester, “Jesuits in Latin America: Argentina.”
