UBC iSchool has hundreds of alumni around the world, working for various information organizations. Many graduates continue to engage with the school after graduation by fostering relationships with current students, hosting students for hands-on learning opportunities, or attending iSchool events. All graduates are encouraged to connect with other alumni through social events, learning opportunities and more.


Ways to get involved

Join the Alumni Panel – a group of alumni who meet virtually on an ad-hoc basis and are committed to serving as advocates and leaders, advising the School, engaging with current students and other alumni, and building up the alumni network. If you would like to participate, or if you have ideas for events and activities the School wants to hear from you! Contact the Educational Services Manager today at

Connect with fellow alumni through the iSchool Alumni LinkedIn Group, or attend annual iSchool events such as the fall awards gala or Research Day in the spring.

Submit your news updates! We profile new positions, life events, awards, publishing and other alumni news in our annual newsletter.

Host a current iSchool student – we place approximately 40 students per term at various organizations throughout the Lower Mainland for job shadowing, internships and project based work. We also place students for paid co-op work terms through the Arts Co-op office. If you have a project that needs information management expertise, contact our Educational Services Manager for more details.
