Statement on ALA Accreditation from SLAIS Director Caroline Haythornthwaite

The Master of Library and Information Studies degree at SLAIS, The iSchool at UBC, has been granted a three-year extension of its accreditation status (2014-2017) by the American Library Association’s Committee on Accreditation (ALA-COA). This is also known as conditional accreditation status. Although this is not a decision granting the longer seven-year accreditation cycle, it affirms full accreditation for the degree and all students who receive an MLIS degree from UBC during those three years and up to two years after.
