Katherine Bloemker and Kevin Kirkpatrick Are 2016 SCE Good Teaching Award Recipients

Katherine Bloemker, Associate Teaching Professor in CME, and Kevin Kirkpatrick, Associate Teaching Professor in CSEE, were presented with 2016 SCE Good Teaching Awards.  Annually, the UMKC SCE Good Teaching Award is given to two SCE faculty, one from our Civil and Mechanical Engineering (CME) department and one from our Computer Science Electrical Engineering (CSEE) department.  Selected by a vote of the graduating SCE seniors, this award truly reflects SCE students’ appreciation and regard. Faculty receiving this award are recognized for their exceptional teaching, leadership and mentoring.

The awards were announced in front of their students and peers at the April 22, 2016 Spring Awards Ceremony and Reception held in Pierson Auditorium in the Atterbury Student Success Center.  SCE gratefully acknowledges the SCE Alumni Association Board for their support of the Good Teaching Awards. The SCE AA Board established an endowed fund to support the Engineering Good Teaching award and works each year with the dean to review the SCE students’ nominations and ratify recipients.
