“CUA’s program gave me the opportunity to gain experience in multiple areas of the profession. It provided a solid foundation in time-tested LIS skills and then showed how we can apply them in many different professional roles. CUA’s location in the nation’s capital also provided endless internship and networking opportunities. Even when I left Washington after graduation, I was pleasantly surprised to find that CUA LIS grads are everywhere. To be a CUA LIS alum is truly to be part of a community.”
