Accreditation

Our MI (formerly MLIS) program is accredited by the American Library Association (ALA) Committee on Accreditation, with the status of Continued accreditation. The School submits an annual statistical report, and a biennial narrative report for approval by the Committee. Accreditation documents are available upon request, pending University approval.

Program Assessment 

In addition to the process of accreditation, the School of Information Management’s MI degree is assessed through an ongoing, robust and systematic planning and self- assessment process.
