All donations to the Faculty of Information help our students, who are being taught ideas and skills necessary to shape our world in the coming decades.

Students come here to gain the expertise to work skillfully in today’s complex knowledge society. Learning from and working alongside highly respected faculty, students acquire both foundational theories essential to information management and leading-edge practices that transform the way knowledge is generated and employed. From archives to digital collections, libraries and information systems to issues of policy and security, our Masters and PhD programs offer leading edge education to meet these demands.


Preparing Global Citizens

Meeting Global Challenges
