Ken Blankemeyer Faculty Forum Scholarship
Ken Blankemeyer was a faculty member at TCC for forty years. He developed and taught all of the courses in Philosophy. He taught courses in History and Religious Studies as well. He was an avid reader. As a teacher of philosophy, he encouraged students to think and evaluate by offering points and counterpoints and by challenging unexamined assumptions. He received the Faculty Award for Teaching Excellence. He carried his role as philosopher into public life. He was one of the founding members of the Tulsa Philosophical Society and one of the organizers of the multi-year Civil War Sesquicentennial Lecture Series and of the Why Race Still Matters Lecture Series. Ken helped create and edited the Faculty Forum to give voice to faculty concerns. He considered the Forum to be his most important contribution to the life of the college.
