Pratt SI Informational Town Hall – Saturday 11/14

Pratt SILSSA is pleased to announce that we are hosting an informational town hall meeting for students, alumni, faculty, and other members of the Pratt School of Information community on Saturday, November 14th, at 2:00pm, in Room 613 of the Pratt Manhattan Campus.

The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the recent transition our school made from SILS to the School of Information, to clarify what this change entails for our students, accreditation and the future of the program, and to allow for continued and increased involvement of the student body in the strategic plan for the School of Information going forward.

The name change came as a bit of a surprise for a lot of us, so we want to make sure everyone’s questions are answered, and voices are heard. We all want Pratt SI to be as great as it can be, and making sure that the student body, alumni community, and other interested parties are involved in and informed about the future of our school is the first step in making that happen.

We will discuss:

  • The MSLIS degree and ALA Accreditation
  • Plans by Pratt SI to offer additional degrees
  • The timeframe/method by which the name change was announced
  • Student involvement in the strategic planning process
  • Personal goals/outcomes for your time at Pratt SI
  • The future of LIS education in general

This is a great opportunity for your voice to be heard, so we hope you can join us!
