Change Agent: Dr. Camila Alire
Dr. Camila Alire became President of the American Library Association and has been nominated by the President of the United States for the National Council of the Humanities. Obama’s nomination was confirmed by the Senate for the position in early 2013.
“The Library and Information Science program at MCE was instrumental in preparing me to serve as a change agent in all my positions. I developed a stronger sense of self while in the program — enough to allow me to lead a 60,000 member professional association and to be awarded the first American Library Association’s Elizabeth Futas’ Catalyst for Change Award.”
