Adriatik Likcani Receives Learning to a Greater Degree Award for Dedication to Future-Focused Academics

Adriatik Likcani (center) received the Learning to a Greater Degree award for his commitment to the professional success of his students.

Adriatik Likcani, assistant professor of Child and Family Development, is well-known for providing real-world experiences for his students and connecting them with industry professionals. This spring, he was recognized for his dedication to his students' future professional success.

"I was blessed with great educational opportunities and mentors throughout my schooling," says Likcani. "I see teaching as an opportunity to give back."

His students regularly benefit from on-campus conferences and off-campus trips to see professionals in the child and family development field at work. He recently took his Family Policy and Advocacy students to Jefferson City to meet with David Pearce, Denny Hoskins, and their staffers, to see policymakers in action.

Likcani says his students are eager to learn and take advantage of educational opportunities.

"Professionals in the field are always amazed at the level of maturity and know-how that our students have," he says. "That's why UCM is developing a big name for itself not only in the state, but internationally, as an outstanding educational institution."

Likcani has also worked in Warrensburg as a counselor and a marriage and family therapist. The student who nominated him for the award noted how valuable his professional experience was to bringing real-world examples into the classroom.

Likcani's future-focused classes ensure his students experience learning to a greater degree.
