Research & Development

SISLT faculty are internationally renowned for their R&D accomplishments. As new students quickly realize, the faculty are committed to a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach, both within MU and among other research-extensive universities.

Nowhere is this more evident than in the Allen Institute, a 10,000-square-foot facility dedicated to supporting collaborative R&D at the intersection of Information & Learning.

Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow

In January 1997, the School of Information Science & Learning Technologies became the home for MU's graduate programs in Library Science and Educational Technology as well as a new, interdisciplinary doctoral program in Information Science & Learning Technologies.

Since then, our numbers of faculty and students have more than doubled; our levels of scholarly productivity and grant-funded work are at an all-time high, and our strategic partnerships continue to serve ourselves and others.

Sometime soon, let's meet at the intersection of Information & Learning. It's a busy place, but we're sure you'll find it a valuable and exhilarating experience.
