The ceremony has wonderful music and speakers. SLIS graduates will process in together following the SLIS Banner. The inside of the hoods are red and white to represent Indiana University. SLIS Ph.D. graduates have royal blue trim (for the Doctor of Philosophy degree - regardless of academic field.)

As announced earlier by email, SLIS merges with the School of Informatics and Computing effective July 1, 2013. August graduates will be awarded their MLS or MIS degrees under our new school name. Dean Shaw and Dean Schnabel have agreed that all students receiving “SLIS” degrees in May, June, and August can participate together in the May ceremony. Dean Shaw will confer the degrees herself and on behalf of Dean Schnabel.

1. Please come by the SLIS Office any day from Friday, April 26 (the “last day of classes”) through exam week - to Friday, May 3. In recognition of your achievement, SLIS has a keepsake gift for those graduating. Stop by to pick it up.

2. Also, check out the SLIS Information Commons any time on Friday, April 26. We will set up a table with items to help celebrate both the end of the semester - and your graduation.
