The LSAC Emerging Professional Award is presented to an individual who has worked in the learning specialist industry between two and six years at the time of nomination.
The nominee may be either a full-time or part-time employee and is not required to be an LSAC member. The nominee must have demonstrated a novel or unique approach to learning skills programming, services, or research that resulted in a substantial impact at their institution.
The nomination may be submitted by anyone, including self nominations. All nominations require two letters of support: one from a professional member of LSAC, and one from anyone in the institution who was impacted by the nominee, ideally the person who has benefited from the nominee’s work.
