Outstanding Faculty Award
Kappa Alpha Theta is proud to recognize ten outstanding faculty members for their contributions to colleges and universities where Theta chapters are present. Professors are carefully chosen for this award among a pool of distinguished nominees who were nominated by Kappa Alpha Theta chapters across the United States and Canada via an official nomination and selection process. Chapters were asked to select one nominee based on his or her passion to inspire students and actions that connect to Theta aspirations: intellectual curiosity, leadership potential, commitment to service, and personal excellence. Candidates are not limited by gender, fraternity or sorority affiliation (or non-affiliation), disciplinary expertise, or number of Thetas taught.
Commitment to higher education and scholarship, as demonstrated by these faculty members, is also a cornerstone of Kappa Alpha Theta’s mission. This shared commitment—and the desire to honor individuals who have left an indelible mark on the lives of Thetas across the continent—was the impetus to establish the Kappa Alpha Theta Outstanding Faculty Award.
