“At every opportunity, [Professor Kunimoto] has shown that she is a caring person with compassion toward everyone around her from the classroom, to the campus, to the greater community,” one of Kunimoto's students wrote. “Her insistence on breaking through cognitive barriers and pushing her students to a higher level of achievement accelerated my growth in academics and in my personal life. Her influence was transformative during a time when I might have otherwise given up or settled for less.”
