Greetings School of Information Friends,
I hope this note finds you well at the beginning of Arizona summer. We have an important upcoming event and ask for your continued financial support as an organizational sponsor of this event, or as an individual donor. Together, we can continue to pursue new challenges and set higher goals. The University of Arizona (UA) School of Information is proud to host our 5th Annual SI Awards Ceremony on Thursday, May 12, 2016 from 6:00pm-8:30pm at the Lodge on the Desert Resort in Tucson, Arizona. For the first time we will be honoring graduates and awardees from all six of our academic programs. All friends of the school are welcome to join faculty and students to celebrate this successful academic year.
The SI Awards Ceremony is a chance to recognize the scholastic achievements of our undergraduate and graduate students and alumni, and also to honor your involvement in our programs Our special guest speaker is Karen Williams, Dean of Libraries and Interim VP for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer at the University of Arizona.
We will celebrate many outstanding student achievements. The School of Information awarded 40 graduate assistantships and over $400,000 in financial aid for the 2015-2016 Academic Year. Additionally, we are thrilled to honor our first graduates in our new eSociety program, as well as other undergraduate successes in the existing but newly-relocated BA and BS degrees in Information Science, Technology, and Arts.
This year’s scholarship and assistantship donors include: Alice B. Good, Beta Phi Mu, Brooke Sheldon, E.A. Cheves, Ed and Kathy Curley, Ed Miller, Fay and Lawrence Clark Powell, Green Valley Friends of the Library, H.W. Wilson Company, Institute of Museum and Library Services, Jimmie Bevill, Katherine Gordon Fox, Knowledge River, Little Chapel of All Nations, Louise Stephens, Margaret Maxwell, Margaret May Caffall, Mary Ester Treat Clark and Western Archaeological and Conservation Center (WACC).
This great record of success is made possible by your generous support. As you know, state funding to public universities, such as the UA, has experienced deep cuts over the past decade. As a result, we have become increasingly dependent on private funding. Our commitment to excellence in scholarship and education, however, never retreats. Thank you for the contributions you make to our students and our School. With your continued financial support, we will extend our record of excellence in research, teaching, and community service.
There are several ways to donate:
Table Sponsorship: $500 will pay for dinners of 8 award winners or students that you designate. This level of contribution for this event includes two seats for the sponsors.
Named Student Sponsorship: If you wish to sponsor a student who worked for you or that you have otherwise sponsored please send us their name and $50 per student. If you attend, you and the student(s) will be placed in the sponsored tables if you wish.
Unnamed Graduate or Undergraduate Student Sponsorship: Students honored at this event will be supported with your contribution.
If any proceeds remain after paying the Award dinner expenses they will be used for the teaching lab, teaching tools and student computing needs.
We are so grateful for your involvement this year and welcome you to join us for this event. We’d like to maintain our ongoing relationships and also forge new ones with those working and living in our community.
