About us

The Black and Latinx Information Science and Technology Society (B.L.I.S.T.S.) was founded
in 1992 at Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies 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. Since 1992, our
organization has fulfilled this 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 the information field, and inspired many more to give
back to the communities they represent.
