50 Years of Graduates
In 2021, the iSchool (formerly SIRLS) is celebrating 50 years of graduates from the Library and Information Science program. In 1971, the first cohort of LIS students graduated from their master's program with over 3,500 students having graduated since. We are collecting short video clips of alumni sharing their stories along with photographs and written memories of the program. If you'd like to share, submit your stories online or contact Holly Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We also invite alumni to put yourself on the map. Tag your location on Padlet to visualize our iSchool alumni across the globe.
