Kevin Thomas is the Program Manager for Academic Living Learning Communities-Honors College at Lincoln University. His research interest is framing proficient student success models at pre-secondary, secondary and post-secondary institutions that have as its foundation, a holistic student development theory grounded in essential principles of vital learning outcomes: Core Communication, Critical Thinking, Integration and Application of Knowledge, Intellectual Adaptiveness, Knowledge of Culture and Society, and Knowledge of Values-Ethics.
