Vision & Values

The School of Information Studies (iSchool), established in 1896 and renamed as the Original Information School in 1974, has a long tradition of leading innovation and change. Our ideals and values are the foundation for our success.

The iSchool is a globally recognized leader in advancing knowledge and developing creative, thoughtful, and technically capable leaders in the information field.

Our Mission.

The mission of the iSchool is to expand human capabilities by connecting people, information, and technology. The faculty and staff of the iSchool are committed to preparing students to be leaders in the information field, advancing knowledge, and using information to solve problems faced by individuals and organizations. Together, the faculty, staff, and students of the iSchool impact research and the information profession through our scholarship, rigorous education opportunities, and commitment to service that advances science, improves professional practice, and contributes both to the communities in which we live and more broadly to society.

iSchool of One.

We are a unified school. The faculty, staff, and students work together, not as individuals or groups who represent a specific area in which they work or affiliate. We challenge ourselves to benefit from the paradox of a single information field that is manifested in many professional expressions.

Our Values.

The culture, curriculum, and decision-making at the iSchool are guided by our shared values.


  • We are a student-centered institution committed to learning and intellectual diversity. As a community of scholars and practitioners, we pursue research and teaching excellence through the development, integration, and application of knowledge.

Discovery and Innovation

  • We value discovery and innovation to advance the information fields. We identify new opportunities, respond creatively to emerging issues, and lead our fields through partnerships and learning communities.


  • As information professionals, we uphold intellectual honesty and responsibility. We carefully consider the implications of our actions, taking fairness and equity into consideration. We contribute to and promote the highest standards for the ethical use of information and technology.

Diversity and Inclusion

  • We strive for diversity in our community and celebrate differences. We embrace a multiplicity of voices to address social and technical challenges through interdisciplinary analysis and solutions.

Global Citizenship and Engagement

  • We enable our iSchool community to participate actively as global citizens working to advance the common good. We have a responsibility to inform and improve society, and to influence policy through pedagogy, research, and advocacy.

Campus Features

Campus Life

We like to say the iSchool is like a family. Tight-knit and deeply passionate, we connect and explore interests that range far outside the classroom. Life here is busy with academic and extracurricular activities. You’ll find so much to do, you’ll be sitting at graduation wondering where the time went.

A vibrant, creative, and close-knit community.

Yes, you’ll study. But you’ll also connect with other students outside of class. Collaborate with faculty on research. Get together for study groups. Work on a new project in one of our state-of-the-art labs. Discuss the latest trends in coffee at the cafe.

Rich life experiences.

Your time on campus won’t just be filled with academics. There are plenty of other pursuits. Visit our art galleries, eat at our dining halls, catch a game at the Dome, and explore our libraries. Join a club or two. Play a sport. Go to a play or a concert. And with over 300 clubs and organizations across campus, you’ll find others who share your passions.

In the heart of New York.

Syracuse is more than just our campus. The area offers the perfect blend of city life and a suburban vibe. Looking for culture? We have access to world-class theater, music, and art opportunities. Sports? Go Orange. Need we say more? And location. You can ski, sail, bike, run, row, hike, and more, all within 30 minutes of campus. Go pumpkin picking in the morning, then enjoy a night on the town in the evening.

Campus Highlights

With its mix of traditional and contemporary architecture, sprawling greens, and historic sculptures, Syracuse’s campus is more than just a place to live. It’s the backdrop for the stories you’ll tell over and over. It’s where you’ll make lifelong friends and life-changing decisions.

At Syracuse University, four seasons provide an ever-changing stage for year-round festivals, expos and installations, and athletic events that unite the student body in an unstoppable wave of orange. Our campus is big enough to lose yourself in your interests but small enough that you'll soon feel at home.
