Interim Dean and C. Olivia Frost Collegiate Professor of Information
School of Information

As a two-time alumna, faculty member, and now interim dean of the School of Information, I have seen the school undergo tremendous change and growth. This year is no exception. As both the University and the School of Information undergo leadership transitions, I am honored to serve the needs of students, faculty, and staff as interim dean and look forward to continuing to maintain the school’s excellence in teaching and research – while maintaining its focus on social justice and civic engagement.

We have much to celebrate at UMSI this fall: the ongoing construction of the Leinweber Computer Science and Information Building, the tenth anniversary of our Master of Health Informatics program, and our record-high enrollment. Our accomplishments would not be possible without the support of our donor community. Please give today and help continue our trajectory of growth.

The following funds have been instrumental in the advancement of our mission:

  • UMSI Annual Fund – provides immediate support where it is needed most
  • UMSI Undergraduate Scholarship Fund – provides scholarship support for BSI students
  • UMSI Graduate Scholarship Fund – provides scholarship support for students pursuing graduate degrees
  • UMSI Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Fund – provides support for outreach, education and other activities that promote an inclusive environment at UMSI

Whether you give each month or once a year, your support enables UMSI to lead the way as an institution of excellence.

Sincerely,
Elizabeth Yakel Signature
