At SLIS, we believe that open and unfettered access to information is the bedrock of democracy. Librarians, information managers, archivists, and museum professionals collaborate, share, make, and advocate for access to knowledge to inform us, engage us, and open our minds. We view the library and information science vocation as a powerful opportunity to educate, inform, and serve the communities in which we live and work. We practice our principles in the classroom, in our research, on the web, and in our sponsorship of activities that engage students in community outreach.
We invite you to come to our dynamic campus and experience Simmons for yourselves. Our students and alumni hail from nearly 80 countries and almost every state. As one of the top programs in the country, we strive to be innovative and bold. We invite you to join us to make a difference in the world of libraries, archives, museums, information industries - and the lives of our patrons and our communities.
