SIS Advisory Board

2019 SIS Advisory Board

The School of Information Sciences Advisory Board was formed in 2005.  The mission of the board is to advise and support the school, its faculty and students. Board members serve three year terms and meet twice per year: once in person on the UT Knoxville campus (usually in the spring) and once virtually in an online meeting space (usually in the fall).

Distinguished information professionals who exemplify the library and information science professions from various backgrounds are invited to serve on the board by the school’s Director.  Board members elect a President, Vice-President (President-elect) and Secretary annually.  The SIS Advisory Board is governed by its Bylaws.

Current board members are listed below in the SIS Advisory Board Directory. The SIS Advisory Board provides counsel and advice regarding goals and objectives, student experiences, and resources and financial support. Their leadership and guidance help to ensure the school continues to prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s information environments.
