 2015 Distinguished Teaching Contributions Award

Kenneth G. Brown, University of Iowa

“Life-changing,” “an amazing teacher,” “an excellent role model,” and “a valued mentor” are typical of the descriptions from Dr. Brown’s former students. His enthusiasm, passion, and interest in stu-dents have been instrumental in developing numerous I-O researchers, consultants, and teachers. His teaching philosophy integrates science and practice through creating a classroom environment that includes service learning and community engagement, where students have the opportunity to put the principles he teaches directly into practice. This teaching approach illustrates to students the complexities of applying academic ideals to real world problems. The consistent focus of his teaching career has not only been in delivering instruction and commitment to helping students succeed, but also in helping others to become better teachers via his own research as well as his service and outreach activities. Evidence of his impact as a teacher is the wealth of awards he has received at the University of Iowa, including the President and Provost Award for Teaching Excellence, Faculty Adviser of the Year, and the Students Choice for Faculty Excellence. It is clear from the high regard students, both present and former, have for Dr. Brown that he is passionate about teaching and stu-dents and that he has  a strong and lasting impact upon the hundreds of undergraduate and graduate students  he has taught.
