GSLIS Commemorative Tassel
The LSAA Tassel Project, sponsored by the Library School Alumni Association (LSAA), provides a unique opportunity to support GSLIS while recognizing faculty or staff, either current or retired.

With a contribution in the amount of your graduation year (e.g., $20.12 for 2012 graduates) or more, alumni can honor a GSLIS faculty or staff member who had an impact on their educational experience. Contributors will receive a commemorative yellow GSLIS tassel to acknowledge their generosity. All who participate will be recognized in the GSLIS Alumni Newsletter, and those faculty who are honored will be notified.

The LSAA has designated the LSAA Endowed Professorship Fund to receive proceeds from the Tassel Project. Endowed positions attract distinguished faculty, whose teaching and research in turn attract exceptional students and contribute greatly to the field. Such endowed positions will only strengthen our School's reputation and reinforce our number-one ranking.

To participate, please stop by the Advancement Office (122 LIS, Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.), make your gift, and pick up your tassel. If you prefer to make your gift online, visit our Opportunities for Giving page and select the "Faculty" tab, choose "LSAA Endowed Professorship," and click the "Make your gift" button. Be sure to include the name of the faculty or staff member you would like to honor in the "Special Instructions" box.

For more information, please contact the GSLIS Office of Advancement.
