Engaged learning outcomes
The School of Information prepares future information professionals to apply practical solutions to real-world problems by placing them in the places that the challenges exist - in real organizations.
Through courses and co-curricular programs, students make an impact in communities and companies by working on projects that provide organizations with useful and usable deliverables, while providing students with real-world experience.
Students work with local and global nonprofits, major corporations, large and small cultural institutions, and everything in between.
UMSI’s commitment to public service offers students the opportunity to volunteer their time applying their information skills for the betterment of society. Through co-curricular programs and activities, students increase their understanding of the complex social issues of the world and how information can address these challenges.
