Kang Teaching Award

Kang Recieves Regents Distinguished Teaching Award 


kangawardCollege of Human Sciences Professor Mihyun Kang received the Regents Distinguished Teaching Award from Oklahoma State University. Kang is the Christine Salmon Endowed Professor in design, housing and merchandising where she teaches interior design. 


Kang believes course materials should be interactive and challenging. She requires each undergraduate student to apply their learning. They are encouraged to solve design problems through a process that begins with traditional three-dimensional sketches, computer aided drawing and visualization to the architectural model. Her students rise to each challenge and produce strong design work.

Kang is a Riata Faculty Fellow for the Riata Center for Entrepreneurship in OSU’s Spears School of Business. She is contributing to multidisciplinary offerings for interior design and entrepreneurship students as they collaborate in a participatory design following a Northern European concept.

As a member of the interior design faculty since 2005, she has also served as internship advisor, graduate coordinator and student chapter advisor for International Facilities Management Association and US Green Building Council. Kang was named OSU’s Outstanding Student Organization Advisor in 2015.

The Regents Distinguished Teaching Award is presented to faculty who have significant and meritorious achievement in the instruction of students for a significant period of years.
