Northwest Provost Mottet honored by alma mater

Northwest Missouri State University Provost Dr. Timothy Mottet was recently honored by his alma mater, William Jewell College in Liberty, Mo., with a citation of achievement for his professional success. William Jewell's annual Excellence in Education banquet, now in its 73rd year, celebrates Northland education and honors teachers, administrative staff, volunteers and businesses which support the nine school districts and five higher education institutions in Kansas City's Northland area.

The award acknowledges the role education plays in the economic development and quality of life in the area. Mottet was named Northwest's chief academic officer in 2014. Under his leadership Northwest has reorganized its academic structure, revised its general education curriculum and opened Northwest-Kansas City at the Northland Innovation Campus, a 90,000-square-foot research and education complex in Gladstone, Mo. Mottet's nearly 20 years of experience in higher education includes teaching, extensive scholarship and research activities.
