Creating a Shared Vision

On Saturday, December 11, 2010, three practitioners worked with ILS faculty (CSKim, MBrown, JKusack, JLiu, YLiu, EOkobi), and Dean Sampson to analyze surveys and develop a shared Vision and Mission.

Earlier, 48 practitioners and alumni were asked to participate in a survey and follow-up workshop to create a shared vision and mission for the Master of Library Science program. Twenty practitioners and alumni took part in the survey.
