MLIS Alumni Gathering
We want to update you on the progress of our ongoing MLIS redesign. As you may know, we started on a major effort to re-envision the MLIS degree during the past year. Over the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 terms, Prof. Liz Lyon led a committee of faculty and other partners on campus to develop a foundation for the redesigned degree. Upon completion of this initial work, the faculty of the Department of Information Culture and Data Stewardship (ICDS) further refined the ideas and developed a Directional Proposal that outlines the basic elements of the redesigned MLIS. We are happy to report that the Directional Proposal was overwhelmingly approved by ICDS faculty in April 2018. In a remarkably short period, with the hard work of multiple individuals, the redesigned MLIS is coming into focus. We are excited to continue this tradition with a new pioneering cohort of students who will pilot the redesigned MLIS degree in 2019.
We will provide light refreshments, and hope to engage in meaningful conversation, answer questions, and connect with our MLIS alumni community.
