Town Hall Talk with the Director

SLIS students are invited to attend a "Town Hall Talk with the Director” – Dr. Kendra Albright -- online or in person, on Wednesday, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m.

Albright became director of the School of Library and Information Science on July 1, 2016. Since that time, she has been talking with faculty, staff, students and alumni to learn more about the School and discuss its future direction.

"I knew Kent State had an outstanding school when I took the position, but I have been even more impressed by what I’ve seen and heard since I arrived. We have amazing faculty and staff members, very engaged alumni and dedicated students," Albright said.

However, because most SLIS students are not in the Kent or Columbus area, where the School has its offices and classrooms, Albright has not had the opportunity to hear from as many students as she would like.

During this interactive “town hall talk,” Albright will share updates about the School and plans for the future, and then open the lines to discuss students' ideas and answer any questions that arise. After that, she'll turn the program over to SLIS Senior Lecturer Mary Anne Nichols, M.L.S., to talk about the career guidance available to SLIS students.

"This gathering is for all SLIS students – MLIS, UX, KM and HI. You are all part of this wonderful community of information professionals, and we want to hear from you," Albright said.

The session will last about one hour. The meeting will be recorded and made available to anyone who cannot attend.
