2010 Faculty Excellence Award Honorees


Lorain County Community College President Dr. Roy A. Church handed out his Faculty Excellence Awards during Commencement exercises on May 22nd. 

Professors Jennifer Kukis and Dr. Vince Granito were honored. Kukis and Granito are both dedicated faculty members in the Social Science and Human Services Division.  Kukis coordinates the Applied Degree Program in Human Services and Granito is a psychology professor.

Granito, who has been a professor on the LCCC campus since the fall of 1997, is known for his innovative approach to instruction and his leadership qualities.  He serves as co-chair for the Center of Teaching Excellence where he has doubled the professional development workshops and seminars by utilizing the expertise of our own faculty.  By expanding these opportunities, he has improved the education environment for all students.  In addition, Dr. Granito serves as a member of the Learning Space Design Team and has been instrumental in helping design new learning spaces on campus.  Dr. Granito is also committed to the community as well.  He teaches a “Journey to the Brain and Beyond” class for third and fourth grade students in the NOVA enrichment program.  He hosts a “Discovery Psychology” table at LCCC’s annual FamilyFest.

Kukis has taught on the LCCC campus for 13 years.  She is continually evaluating and assessing teaching practices to develop and implement new learning experiences for student’s success.    Professor Kukis developed a mentoring program in her Case Management course that enabled students who were receiving below 70% on their basic listening skills assessment to improve to a level of all passing at 90% or higher.  In her Poverty and Social Welfare course, she created a new assignment entitled Poverty in America Presentation utilizing technology.  Kukis serves as Assistant Director of Lorain County Sacred Landmarks and Chair of a Diversity Task Force Subcommittee on campus.  One of her peers stated “Professor Kukis is a source of luminous energy for achieving all that higher education and the field of human services has to offer.”

Kukis and Granito embody LCCC’s vision of enriching lives by creating gateways to educational, technological and personal growth.
