Congratulations to the 2022 Associates!

It is a pleasure to welcome and introduce the 2022 Mortenson Associates from 8 countries:
Ghana, Japan, Kuwait, Malawi, Oman, Pakistan, Republic of Korea, and South Africa.

The theme of the 2022 Associates Program, A Professional Development Program for Library Leaders and Innovators, is “Smart and Smarter: Leadership and Innovation in Libraries.”
We appreciated the contributions of this year’s librarians, information specialists, and faculty, who presented their knowledge, expertise, and libraries, engaging this year’s theme. To help track their progress and experiences, the 2022 Associates have been updating their reflections of the program on the Mortenson Center Associates Program Blog Page:…/202…/
These last four weeks have truly been so enriching and engaging for all of our participants, and as the Associates depart campus today, their contributions and experiences will remain in our thoughts as we start preparing for the 2023 Associates Program shortly!
Congratulations to all of our Associates – we cannot wait to see what you accomplish as you return to your home institutions!
