Congratulations to the innovative and dedicated University of Denver ASiS&T Student Chapter for winning Chapter of the Year award. Congrats, too, to Simmons’ Student Chapter as co-winner.


Thank you to Dr. Shimelis Assefa, DU Faculty Advisor to the chapter.


The award citation reads:


For a chapter of its size, the student chapter at the University of Denver is extremely active. Among the particularly noteworthy activities of this chapter are the number and quality of local events, the frequency and constancy of communication with its membership, the oversight and concern for local chapter finances and the quality administration provided by the officers. The chapter offers many diverse and interesting activities and has attempted to work with other organizations. It has also shown creative use of social media as communication tools. They not only have a well-maintained organization, but also clearly articulated future plans. 


We are fortunate to have outstanding students and alumni who achieve remarkable things throughout the field of libraries, archives, and information science.
