Emerging Professionals Program

The UTSC Library plays an important role in student experience, and one of these ways is by providing quality employment and co-op/practicum placements. The Emerging Professionals program seeks to do the following: 

  • Standardize processes for posting, hiring, and evaluating student experience to develop benchmarks and KPIs that will allow these activities to improve in quality over time. 
  • Enable a holistic perspective on these activities, which can be used to inform practice as well as objectively demonstrate the value provided by the library for students.
  • Maximize matching fund opportunities to stretch available funding and make the program more robust. 
  • Create strong professional connections with future information and IT professionals.
