This month's KPC Word on Campus

What is the quality of your relationship with KPC faculty? What qualities do you most admire in your instructors?

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

The quality of my relationship with my instructors is great due to the small class sizes. I admire the instructors and especially appreciate the hands-on instruction.

– Ricardo (Rick) Cornejo, AES

Associate of Applied Science, Process Technology

Over 99 percent to the good. The willingness to help out with questions in relation to assignments.

– Bruce Nibert, KBC

Bachelor of Arts, Business Management

For me, the faculty at KPC are like a family and, as a family, I admire the dedication, loyalty, honesty, and love each exemplary instructor provides to their students. I have never felt more supported at any university than I have at KPC.

– Keeven Joshua Lee Macik, KRC

Associate of Applied Science, Paramedic Technology/Bachelor of Arts, Biology

I admire ease of talk-ability and like that I feel comfortable around my professors.

– Kyle Potocek, KRC

Associate of Applied Science, Process Technology

The quality of the relationships I have built with the KPC faculty are remarkable. I admire their dedication and commitment to the student’s education. Through the few years I’ve spent at KPC, I have witnessed time and again the staff as well as instructors stay late to assist with questions, homework and to proctor tests for students whose work schedules are conflicting. They also go above and beyond to ensure my classmates and I are prepared for future jobs upon graduation.

– Jared Sekula, AES

Associate of Applied Science, Process Technology

I feel like the faculty at KPC are very friendly and always willing to help. I really admire their commitment to their fields and their enthusiasm in raising up the next generation of professionals.

– Amanda Dorough, KRC

Associate of Applied Science, Paramedic Technology

My quality is that of growing friendship. I most admire the way they connect with their students.

– Calvin Johnson, KBC

Bachelor of Arts, Justice

I admire the time and care the instructors take to help students be successful.

– Mercedes Becker, KBC
