MLIS orientation is an essential element of the MLIS program. It is an opportunity for new graduate students to become acquainted with the SLIS and to connect with fellow students, faculty and staff in a relaxed atmosphere. We welcome our new students into our learning community by providing networking opportunities, team-building exercises and activities designed to give you a glimpse of your future career as an information professional. Along the way, we will introduce you to the curriculum, services and policies that will be the key to your success at Wayne State and in the SLIS.
New students are required to attend the School's on-campus MLIS orientation because it is an essential element of the degree program. New students must complete MLIS orientation prior to starting classes. MLIS orientation provides important information to make your first weeks as a student in the School as productive and stress-free as possible and to help you establish valuable personal connections that will carry you through the School and beyond.
Certificate-only students are not required to attend orientation.
