Faculty bring a wealth of professional and scholarly knowledge to the courses they teach, as well as in their role as faculty advisors. MLIS students are able to choose from among our pathway advisors organized by specialty, or from one of our generalist advisors, when creating a customized pathway through the MLIS curriculum.  

In addition to receiving numerous awards handed out by leading professional organizations, our school honors our outstanding faculty with special awards in recognition of their teaching excellence, outstanding achievements, exemplary service, and overall hard work and dedication to our graduate students and the community. The Faculty and Staff Awards are announced each year in the spring.
