Concentration Coordinator(s)

Concentration Coordinators are appointed by the Director in consultation with the FAC for established concentrations in SLIS programs. Currently SLIS has a school library media concentration in the MLIS program, and concentrations in health informatics, knowledge management, and user experience design of the MS-IAKM program. Concentration coordinators are responsible for submitting curricular proposals for approval to the SLIS Curriculum Committee, work with the Associate Director to identify part-time instructors for concentration offerings and establish a rotation for course scheduling. Concentration Coordinators work with the marketing staff and recruitment team to promote their program and recruit students. Concentration coordinators work with Accreditation and Assessment Committee for reporting required assessment data, planning program accreditation requests, and prepare accreditation reports for accredited programs.
