Kim Matthews comes to KANEKO from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) Minority Health Disparities Initiative (MHDI). At MHDI, Kim developed/funded/implemented collaborative initiatives that bridged diverse rural communities with multi-disciplinary minority health disparities researchers. She brings nearly two decades of non-profit development/leadership, fundraising, and instructional experience to the KANEKO.
To deepen all educational experiences, Kim advocates the use of visual literacy and critical thinking strategies across all disciplines. She has conceived, funded and executed several projects that combined research methodology with art to give voice to those who are usually silenced. Forever inspired by social justice arts, Kim is excited to continue her work with the KANEKO team.
Her educational background includes a Master of Arts (History at UNL) and a Master of Educational (Teach, Learn & Curriculum at Mizzou). She loves the Arts, as well as her two adult children. Her daughter is a linguist in the Air Force while her son is completing a terminal degree in economics at University of Tennessee.
