aboutus

BLISTS was founded in 1992, at Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies (iSchool), to address the lack of support for Black and Latinx students interested in information science and technology. Our mission is to educate students about careers in information science and technology, provide computer literacy support,  and help students build  strong corporate and alumni networks.

Our Strategy

 Since 1992,  we have fulfilled our mission by centering our work around Networking, Mentorship, and Support. The impact of this work has spanned multiple decades, supported hundreds of  Black & Latinx students into careers in Information Technology, and inspired many more to give back to the communities that they represent.
