A-LIST 2017

The Albert S. Cook Library Leadership Institute for Students (A-LIST) offers participants experiential learning opportunities in leadership, research, writing, teaching, and outreach. These opportunities enable A-LIST students to give back to their peers, the library, and the university.

The purpose of A-LIST is to:

  • promote academic success
  • prepare student participants for engaged citizenship
  • enhance library visibility via innovative outreach

A-LIST student responsibilities include: peer research assistance, library outreach and marketing, leading workshops and tours, assisting in the classroom, leading library related projects, and participating in leadership and library related development. 

Cook Library's responsibilities to A-LIST students include: mentorship, experiential learning, leadership opportunities, career development assistance, and a platform for creativity and innovative thinking.

Three highly qualified students are accepted into the program each spring term for a year-long commitment.
