The feature story of the Summer 2013 issue of Indiana Informatics (Volume 10, Number 2) is titled: Our Growing Family Tree. The story includes quotes from graduates from both SLIS and SoIC, and it celebrates the merger of the two schools that became effective July 1, 2013.
Dean Bobby Schnabel’s letter also talks about the positive outcomes of the merger. Below are a few excerpts from his Dean’s “Inside View” on page 4:
The union of two schools: announcing the new School of Informatics and Computing
• This feels almost like a wedding reception speech. In this issue of Indiana Informatics, we celebrate the union of two lovely schools (each located both on the Bloomington and Indianapolis campuses of IU) – the School of Informatics and the School of Library and Information Science – to become a new two-campus school called the School of Informatics and Computing.
•By combining the highly ranked programs in library and information science, the nation’s first school of informatics with some of the premier programs in that field, and an excellent and longstanding computer science program, we form the broadest and perhaps the largest computing and information school at any university in the U.S.
SLIS (now SoIC) graduates were mailed a copy of the magazine. If you did not receive your copy, be sure to update your mailing address with the IU Alumni Association:
