The iSchool's i3 Program Earns Award for Significant Impact on Diversity

Pitt’s School of Information Sciences iSchool Inclusion Institute (i3) is the recipient of the 2015 Chancellor’s Affirmative Action Award. The i3 program each year prepares undergraduate students from underrepresented populations for graduate education in information sciences.

Chancellor Patrick Gallagher presented the award at the May 20 Senate Council meeting.

“This award is given to a department or program that has made a significant impact on the University’s efforts to expand diversity,” Gallagher told the council.

“In making its decision, the selection committee cited the i3 program as an important tool in ensuring that undergraduate students from underrepresented groups will have the exposure to experiences that encourage them to pursue graduate studies in fields that have historically lacked diversity.” Read more >
