Emporia State University/School of Library and Information Management

Emporia State University is a regional institution with an emphasis on teaching. The SLIM culture is based on a collegial cooperative approach to developing and delivering the curriculum. SLIM core courses are taught by full-time faculty; many elective courses are taught by practitioners who serve on the SLIM national adjunct faculty. SLIM core courses are taught in weekend-intensive classes supplemented by online instruction via Canvas and Zoom and/or other web conferencing applications; the remaining elective courses are all taught online. Weekend-intensive classes for SLIM's MLS program are taught at the Emporia campus as well as at SLIM's regional locations in Portland, OR; Denver, CO; Salt Lake City, UT; Overland Park, KS, and Sioux Falls, SD. Regional Directors in all locations provide professional student advising and assist faculty with technology and other forms of classroom support. Admissions, advising, curriculum, and classroom policies are governed by the faculty.
