Kenyon in Quotes

“Robert A. Oden, Jr. Professor of Biology Joan Slonczewski taught me to think critically and gave me opportunities that snowballed into a lifetime of small achievements."

Kenyon in Quotes

"Without ever saying anything overtly to our political science class, Professor Emerita of Political Science Pam Jensen somehow managed to encourage intellectual rigor outside the class, and respectful engagement with a wide range of ideas within it. She became a model for me of what a scholar, instructor, mentor and guide could, and should, be."

Recent Class Notes

Kevin C. Kropf, Ozark, Missouri, earned his doctorate in educational leadership with a higher education focus in 2019, and is now in his fifth year as the executive vice president of enrollment management at Drury University in Springfield, Missouri. “What’s brought me joy in this unusual year are the 30 books I’ve read,” he offers, “and a new tradition — Saturday night candlelight dinners, complete with questions like ‘What was hard for you this week?’ ‘What helped?’ ‘What brought you joy?’”


Samuel W. Anderson and Grace Twesigye are proud and exhausted parents of a baby son, Xavier, in Brooklyn, NewYork. “We don’t want to be those people, but if you ask we will talk about our baby at great length,” Sam writes.


I made the most of 2020: got engaged, married and bought a new house, all in about two months. Despite the many challenges that surround us all, my wife, dog (The Duke) and I feel so fortunate to embark on this new life journey. Since Kenyon, I’ve worked in advertising, specializing in the last 10 years in multicultural and inclusive marketing — a field that aligns with my academic, professional and cultural background.
