Dear Pratt Institute School of Information Community,
I am writing to express how honored I am to serve as the Interim Dean of Pratt SI for academic year 2017/2018 while we search for a new Dean. I would also like to thank Dr. Tula Giannini for her service to the school and Institute, and wish her a productive sabbatical this coming academic year.
I wanted to let you know that I have open office hours where you can come in to discuss any topic. This current semester my open office hours are Tuesdays from 3-6pm. Beginning May 22 through June 28, my office hours will be Mondays and Wednesdays from 4-5:30pm (before my summer class). You will find me in room 604D at PMC. I am also available by appointment by emailing me.
Lastly, I am excited to announce a SI Town Hall to discuss progress and next steps related to the continued accreditation of the MSLIS program by ALA on April 27, 2-3pm in PMC 609. I will be joined by special guest Vice Provost for Academic Affairs Donna Heiland, as well as SI faculty who have been involved in activities that intersect with the accreditation. We welcome community feedback at this Town Hall.
Many thanks and looking forward to the next academic year,
