For Kappa Alpha Theta, our members aspire to social, intellectual, and moral growth in order to lead the way for other women in higher education. We lead in order to honor Bettie Locke Hamilton's notion of contributing to "something bigger than ourselves." We assist our members in becoming their best selves and, in turn, becoming Leading Women, too. Along the way to achieving such aspirations, our members encounter those who have a deep appreciation and passion for education and the innate ability to inspire, motivate, and teach.

Throughout our lives, more specifically our academic careers, we have all more than likely met those who relay information with the expectation that it be held in the "bank" that is our brain and left to sit. However, sometimes we are fortunate to encounter those who encourage intellectual curiosity, leadership development, a commitment to service, and personal excellence in order to fully comprehend and utilize the information presented to us. These people have a profound influence on the development of the whole student. These catalysts for our members' growth are outstanding faculty members.

For the second year, Theta honors ten outstanding faculty members for contributions during the 2012-2013 academic year. The faculty members were chosen from more than 110 nominations by Theta chapters that believed their professor exuded Theta's aspirations inside and outside of the classroom.

This year's honorees' areas of study range from the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) to history and education. In addition, the type of institution in which they teach range from public to private, research based to liberal arts based.

If you think your professor should be nominated as an outstanding faculty member for the 2013-2014 academic year, you will be able to do so in Spring 2014. Please look for correspondence from Assistant Director of Education & Leadership Victoria Stankus.

If you have questions regarding the Outstanding Faculty Member program, please email me.

Victoria Stankus, Eta Xi/Quinnipiac, is the assistant director of education & leadership at Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity.
