Student Leader Elections are almost here!

Greetings MLISers!

Want to make your mark on the iSchool, pursue your interests more deeply, offer support and lead your fellow students? Consider becoming a student leader! 

Becoming a part of the professional community is an important part of your education. Becoming a student leader won’t just help you network with your peers; you’ll also get to make professional contacts, gain experience with event planning, and build your leadership skills. For a closer look at some of the benefits and our iSchool organizations, ALISS has prepared a brief presentation for you to consider.

Connecting at the iSchool

ALISS will host a Student Leadership Brown-Bag on Wednesday, February 11th from 12:30pm-2pm in the Allen Research Commons Red C to provide more information about becoming a student leader and respond to questions or concerns. Also, feel free to bring your questions to the Open Meetings on 2/6 and 2/11!

More info on elections coming soon!

Greetings MLISers! It’s that time again – Don’t forget to participate in the Winter Quarter Open Meetings! Do you have questions about spring registration? Comments about your current coursework? Suggestions for the future? Do you want more information about becoming a student leader?

This is your chance to give direct feedback on your iSchool experience and improve the program for future students. ALISS is committed to helping maintain an open dialogue between students and iSchool administration, and we value your participation.

The F2F Meeting will be held Friday, February 6th from 2pm-4pm in the Allen Library Research Commons, Red C.

The Online Meeting will be held the following Wednesday, February 11th from 6:30pm-8:30pm (PST;

As usual, the first hour is students-only. During the second hour, we will be joined by Marie Potter (MLIS Academic Advisor). Be on the look out for more events soon!

If you’re unable to attend, remember that we have the ALISS course on Canvas to discuss your iSchool experience in a more secure place than social media. There are no faculty, staff, or administrators on the Canvas site, so your comments/questions/concerns will remain anonymous. Post your thoughts there and we will address them during the open meetings.
