Show Our Students the Volunteer Way
The continued involvement of alumni in our community is one of the ways we maintain our ranking as one of the top library and information science programs in the country, which we strive to improve each day so that your SIS degree continues to grow in value. Help us build a strong network so we can take care of each other, and a degree that will shine as bright today as it did on the day your received it!
Get Involved with the School of Information Sciences
While you may have graduated and moved on, we still want to stay in touch with you and connect you with the next generation of Information Sciences students. Please fill out the form below if you’re interested in any of the many ways you can show your Volunteer spirit by engaging with the School of Information Sciences and our students.
Alumni can host a student visit to their business or organization, or even assist in coordinating a student trip to their city or region. These trips expose students to the work professionals and alumni, such as you, are doing out in the real world!
We’re always looking for ways to introduce students to alumni, or for alumni to network with each other. We organize various social and career development events where alumni can meet with students. Alumni can also volunteer to be professional mentors.
While alumni can always donate to our enrichment fund, there are many other ways you can provide financial support for students and faculty. These include establishing endowments and scholarships or funding student trips or equipment purchases.
Stay Connected With SIS
Stay informed about all of things that are happening at the school and learn about events where you can reunite with your SIS classmates, meet new alumni and current students, and develop your professional network, and your professional skills. Don’t miss opportunities to give-back by mentoring students and sharing your expertise with us.
By updating your alumni directory information, you will also be subscribed to our monthly @SIS alumni newsletter, featuring notes from our director, SIS news, alumni and friends features, and more! You can also opt-in to the newsletter with our subscription form.
Our alumni email distribution list (Listserv), email@example.com is a discussion list for SIS alumni to share personal and professional news and events. Subscribe to the SIS Alumni Listserv here.
Spark: the Annual SIS Publication
Spark is a new SIS print annual to keep you connected with the UT School of Information Sciences community. Alumni, students, and faculty do amazing things every day, and we have gathered a number of their stories in hopes they will inspire you and make you proud to be a graduate of SIS.
