Professor of Information Technology
Kevin Brunner, Ph.D., is a professor of Information Technology. He attended Graceland University (College), earning his B.S. in Computer Science and Computer Information Systems, and completed his M.S. in Computer Information Systems from Nova Southeastern University. With his dissertation on “A Child Centric Interface: Graffiti or not Graffiti”, Dr. Brunner earned his Ph.D. in Computer Information Systems from Nova Southeastern University, studying small user interfaces and enjoys sharing his vast knowledge and learning new technologies with his students. The fast changing field of technical knowledge requires everyone to assist in the learning process, which is Dr. Brunner’s personal proof he is still learning with his students.
Dr. Brunner also serves as the Ackerley Scholars Director at Graceland University. What is the Ackerley Scholars program? It is an exciting opportunity for students who have achieved academic excellence to be challenged to continue to build their technological skills. The program affords Dr. Brunner the opportunity to share with Computer Science and Information Technology students in unique ways. Those participating in the program attend conferences, programming contests, robotics contests, current events sessions and many other events. The best part is the support of a large endowment allowing CSIT students to attend these events at no cost.
Coaching the golf team is Dr. Brunner’s hobby, enjoying the time he spends with young athletes on the course. Coaching golf gives him some time away from campus to relax and enjoy the great outdoors. Additionally, Dr. Brunner grew up in Colorado and is married with three wonderful children.
