For the sixth year, Kappa Alpha Theta recognizes faculty for contributions to colleges and universities where Theta chapters are present via the Outstanding Faculty Award.
The faculty members were selected from nominations by Theta college chapters across the United States and Canada. Chapters were asked to select one nominee and base their selection on the professor's passion for inspiring students and actions that connect to Theta's values of intellectual curiosity, leadership potential, commitment to service, and personal excellence. Candidates were not limited by gender, fraternity/sorority affiliation (or non-affiliation), disciplinary expertise, or number of Thetas taught.
