The San José State University (SJSU) School of Information alumni and student association has recently changed its name, and the new name better embodies the goals of the dynamic group. Alumni President Jennifer Dinalo explained that she supported the name change from SLISConnect to iSchool Connext because “the mission of this group is to create connections between students and alumni and to provide continued support as members transition from being students to what comes next in their careers as alumni.”
