Student Groups

Student Groups

Becoming a part of the professional community is an important aspect of professional education. Students at the Information School are fortunate to have a number of quality professional organizations with student chapters and student membership. We encourage our students to become active in at least one of these organizations and join your respective listservs to ensure that you see communication from the student organizations.
