The Kansas Independent College Association (KICA) is proud to announce the selection of nineteen Kansas college faculty members to receive the association’s Faculty of Distinction award. The honorees are recognized at an professional development celebration and award reception on October 13, 2016.

The KICA Faculty of Distinction program celebrates excellence and achievement among faculty at the 19 accredited private colleges and universities in Kansas. Throughout their existence, these colleges, which included the oldest colleges in Kansas, have emphasized the importance of classroom teaching, personal attention to each and every student, and a commitment to character, values, and learning through every facet of their graduates’ lives. The 2016 KICA Faculty of Distinction honorees are exemplars of this approach to college education and serve as models for educators everywhere.
