Congratulations winter 2015 SIS graduates!
The University of Pittsburgh’s School of Information Sciences (SIS) celebrates our 2015 winter graduates! Family, friends, and supporters joined graduates at the William Pitt Union for the Winter Recognition Ceremony on Friday, December 11, which was led by Dean Ronald L. Larsen.
Larsen charged graduates to remember the challenging lessons learned during their time at the SIS and asked them to apply their own sense of creativity to the knowledge they developed in order to “envision a better future and to work toward its realization.” He also reminded students and faculty of their many personal, professional, and departmental accomplishments to be proud of over the past year. He concluded with an invitation to graduating students to stay in contact with the SIS through the Alumni Association in order to share future achievements and growth.
Following the introduction, Larsen, along with department chairs and faculty colleagues presented students from each program with their degrees. Director of Student Services Wesley Lipschultz welcomed and invited recent graduates to engage with the SIS alumni community, which boasts nearly 14,000 members and is active in a number of events throughout the year.
The recently graduated students joined faculty, staff, and loved ones in the ballroom for light refreshments after the ceremony. Congratulations and best wishes SIS graduates!
