Alumni and Partners

DLIS Alumni
Graduates remain loyal to the Division of Library and Information Science (DLIS) at St. John’s long after they earn their degrees.

The Division strengthens this loyalty by fostering meaningful relationships between alumni and current students, and by encouraging alumni to give back by donating funds, mentoring students and sharing their professional achievements. If you wish to make a donation, please contact the Director, Dr. James Vorbach at 718-990-6200 or e-mail

Professional Achievements
Alumni are encouraged to share their professional achievements, awards and appointments with us. That way, we can acknowledge your success and inspire future alumni.

Alumni can support DLIS by donating funds for events, receptions or awards or contributing funds and/or endowments that support the development of the program. If you wish to make a donation, please contact the Director, Dr. James Vorbach at 718-990-6200 or e-mail

Alumni can stay involved with the University by getting involved with an on-campus mentoring program for current students. Mentors share information about professional and/or personal milestones for use in our DLIS newsletter, interact with new students at Orientation sessions and speak with graduating students at Commencement receptions.
