JASPA Awards - Outstanding New Professional in Jesuit Student Affairs


The Ignatian Medal for the Outstanding New Professional in Jesuit Student Affairs is conferred on individuals who have distinguished themselves in the early years of their careers. A new professional is defined as a person with three years or less service in Jesuit student affairs work. Ignatian Medal recipients may have brought a strong sense of professionalism to their job, or have demonstrated a high level of skill or ability, or have shown an early record of success which stands above the norm. Established the spring of 1997, this award is given annually to a new professional who demonstrates a strong commitment to Jesuit Student Affairs.
