Nomination for the Ignatian Medal for an Outstanding Campus Program or Initiative 2017

2017 JASPA Awards of Excellence

The Ignatian Medal for an Outstanding Campus Program or Initiative

The Ignatian Medal for an Outstanding Campus Program or Initiative is the only Ignatian Medal awarded to an institution rather than to an individual person. Student Affairs work uses programs and services as the tools to meet students' needs and to resolve conditions on campus which impede the educational process. The development of such programs and initiatives is a creative process, one which requires a multiplicity of skills and talents. Good programs or initiatives are often shared among campuses, and certain programs or initiatives stand out from all others for their creativity, focus, adaptability to different campus environments, and for their proven effectiveness. Established the Spring of 1997, this award is given annually.

Nomination Packet Should Include:

  • Examples of the Program or initiative’s Connection to the Award – Program/Initiative title, description, goals, objectives, staff support, student participation (testimonies), outcomes, and effectiveness
  • Letter of Nomination (one)
  • Optional – Letters of Support (up to two)
