Alumni & Friends


We are proud to have an engaged and vibrant alumni community. The powerful relationships forged between faculty and students, and among classmates, thrive long beyond graduation day. Our alumni share ideas and professional opportunities, graciously offer their time to mentor current GSLIS students, and take advantage of continuing professional development course offerings.

We invite you to follow postings on the GSLIS calendar, learn about topics of interest on the GSLIS Twitter and in Facebook, and stay active in our community forums. In addition, please check our School publications with features of interest to alumni.
