Knowledge River (KR) is a national exemplar in LIS education at the University of Arizona School of Information. KR reflects the ethnic diversity of the communities that libraries serve in Arizona and nationally. Knowledge River Scholars earn an MA in Information and Library Science while participating in a cohort model that includes a support network of alumni, institutional partners, and professional development. The presentation will focus on experience of scholars working with our multiple Arizona library partners, and the impact of KR scholars working in the field as we leverage change to improve librarianship for our communities. Presenters will include KR Scholars who will address skills and training for library program professionals, innovative programming and practices, and the impact of library leadership on their graduate and internship experiences. This presentation will inform future library practices in Arizona for current leadership and for new librarians from the perspective of students and recent graduates.
