Nomination for the Ignatian Medal for Outstanding Achievement in Jesuit Student Affairs Work 2018

2018 JASPA Awards of Excellence

The Ignatian Medal for Outstanding Achievement in Jesuit Student Affairs Work

The Ignatian Medal for Outstanding Achievement in Jesuit Student Affairs Work is conferred on individuals who have made significant, specific accomplishments in the profession. This award thus differs from the Yanitelli Award, which recognizes a person's lifetime of service. Ignatian Medal recipients may have successfully resolved particularly difficult problems or issues, have achieved recognition as a national expert in a particular area of knowledge, or have provided outstanding leadership at the campus or regional level. Established the Spring of 1997, this award is given annually to a professional staff member who embodies the above achievement in Jesuit Student Affairs Work.

Nomination Packet Should Include:

  • Examples of Nominee’s Connection to the Award
