2018/19 iSchool Students of the Year

The Arts Co-op Program’s iSchool Student of the Year Award is given annually to two students; one to a MLIS or dual student (who used their MLIS background on the co-op job) and the other to a MAS or dual student (who used their MAS background on the co-op job). These awards recognize outstanding achievement in all aspects of the UBC iSchool co-op student’s performance, including academics, the workplace, and professional/community involvement.

We acknowledged a winner and honourable mention from both the MLIS and MAS programs for the 2018/19 academic year.
