"Bridge" People Award

Prize: National/international honour


Inclusion and community are cherished values of the LSJ SIG. In their chapter, “Bridge People: Civic and Educational Leaders for Social Justice,” Shoho & Merchant (2006) describe individuals who “were committed to creating a bridge between themselves and others, for the purposes of improving the lives of all those with whom they worked. As such, they functioned as ‘Bridge People’ in the fullest sense” (p. 86). This award is meant to recognize individuals or groups whose work “creates a bridge between themselves and others” through scholarship and research.
