Kenneth J. Sufka  

Award-winning Teacher and Researcher, College “A-Grade” Expert

Kenneth J. Sufka, Ph.D. is an award-winning teacher and researcher – and a highly sought-after speaker on college and high school campuses. His smart and accessible book, The A Game: Nine Steps To Better Grades is a must-read for all college First Year Experience students and for junior and senior high school students (and their parents) eager to get a leg up on the college competition. It is one of those rare books — concise and compelling, yet based on science. It is quickly becoming a staple in first year college curricula, and high schools are also using its savvy lessons for students already in the college mindset. The A Game is game changing students’ college experience.

He has received numerous awards in his career, including the University of Mississippi’s Elsie M. Hood Outstanding Teaching Award in 1996, Faculty Achievement Award for outstanding research and teaching in 2005, and the Thomas F. Frist Student Service Award in 2006. Professor Sufka has also been recognized by American Psychological Association’s Presidential Citation in 2000 for his national-level efforts at undergraduate curricular reform and by Iowa State University Department of Psychology’s Alumni Achievement Award in 2010 for exceptional contributions to teaching and service to the profession and to the community.
