Adult Learner Awards
Kentuckiana Metroversity recognizes that adult students enrich our academic communities but also that attending college as an adult may be both complicated and challenging. To honor these nontraditional students and the faculty and staff that support them, Metroversity has created the Adult Student Learner Awards.
This year, outstanding adult learners and the faculty and staff that support them were honored on April 26 at a dinner and celebration hosted by Kim Pelle at Indiana University Southeast. Interim Vice Chancellor Anne Skuce welcomed the award winners and their families. Dr. Dan Ash, who earned his degrees as a non traditional student and Paul Hankins, a past winner of the award, entertained, enlightened and applauded the winners. Here is a complete list of the winners and a brief biography that demonstrates why they were chosen for the award. Metroversity Outstanding Adult Learners, Faculty and Staff 2013

There is both an undergraduate and graduate adult student winner as well as a faculty member and staff member selected from each insititution to receive an award.
