This paper considers how LIS graduate programs can expand their reach through greater engagement with undergraduate students. The author uses a case study approach to experiment with connecting graduate and undergraduate students via an experiential learning project and suggests that there were perceived benefits for both student groups in doing so. This paper is intended to initiate a dialogue about deepening LIS graduate programs' connections with undergraduate students. It provides a broader look ways in which other professional graduate programs engage undergraduate students through curriculum or other means, considers the benefits in doing so, and highlights approaches through which LIS graduate programs can facilitate this engagement.
