SISLT & COE New Student Orientation: Please RSVP!


As we prepare for the SISLT Orientation, we would like to know who plans to attend. If you do plan to attend, please RSVP using this quick online survey. This RSVP is just for the SISLT Orientation, not for the COE Orientation, so please re-RSVP so we know whom to expect in the afternoon. New and returning students are welcome!





Offered only once a year! Register for ISLT 7315 – “Management of Information Agencies”


“Greetings fellow life forms.  I’d like to mention that ISLT 7315 (“Management of Information Agencies”) will be offered this fall semester in Columbia, St. Louis, Kansas City, and Omaha.  You should know that this course is offered only once a year.  Because of this, you who need the course should take it this fall, or you’ll have to wait until the fall of 2014 for it to come around again.  Thanks.  JB”
