When Namiko Kunimoto joined Ohio State’s faculty in 2013, there were no Japanese art courses, and History of Photography had not been offered for many years. To remedy this required her to develop a half-dozen courses during her first years on faculty. In 2018, Kunimoto was awarded the Alumni Award for Distinguished Teaching, which is given to faculty for their superior teaching. Faculty members are nominated by present and former students and colleagues and selected by a committee of alumni, students, and faculty. See full Spotlight here.
