WELCOME TO THE UNT STUDENT CHAPTER OF ASIS&T! WE BELIEVE THE KEY TO STUDENT SUCCESS IS A STRONG SOCIAL AND ACADEMIC SUPPORT SYSTEM.
The following message was published in the Inside ASIS&T newsletter.
ASIS&T is pleased to announce that the winner of the 2018 ASIS&T Student Chapter of the Year Award is the University of North Texas (UNT) Student Chapter. In selecting UNT ASIS&T student chapter for the award, the jury considered the chapter’s membership, activities, communications, financial and administrative management, and contributions to ASIS&T and the broader information science community.
The award committee was impressed by the variety and quality of chapter activities, including the Multidisciplinary Information Research Symposium 2018 that attracted more than 80 attendees. The success of this event had galvanized chapter members and other students who attended the event and pledged to get involved with the future chapter events. The chapter uses every opportunity to collaborate with the faculty, staff, and other organizations in order to increase its value for its members. In addition to active student leaders, the chapter enjoys continues mentorship of its faculty advisors, Dr. Daniel Alemneh and Dr. Jeonghyun (Annie) Kim who contribute to the chapter’s success.
Congratulations our officers who served the student chapter in AY 2018-2019: Ana Roeschley (President), LeAnn Boyce (Vice-President), Amanda Hovious (Events Chair), and Deborah Caldwell (Communication Officer).

Our goal for the University of North Texas student chapter of ASIS&T is to provide opportunities to build one’s knowledge in the ever-expanding field of Information Science while connecting with faculty and industry professionals. Hosting regional and international conferences on our campuses in Denton, TX, has allowed for students to showcase their current research, while becoming familiar with the peer-review process and receiving constructive feedback from seasoned faculty members. While our affiliation is with the College of Information at the University of North Texas, we welcome all who are interested in Information Science at UNT and beyond.
