Migette Kaup, professor of interior design, was awarded the designation of Fellow of the Interior Design Educators Council (IDEC) on March 9, 2019. IDEC is the leading association and authority on interior design education in North America. Their purpose is to advance the interior design profession through advocacy, expansion of the body of knowledge of the discipline and excellence in education for interior design. Kaup joins a distinguished group as there are currently only 45 living members of the IDEC Council of Fellows.
In announcing the award, Dr. Margaret Portillo, University of Florida, said, “Dr. Kaup represents the greatest professional standards for a design educator; service above self, ambitious and meaningful teaching and research that changes lives through discovery and application in design.”
“We are extremely proud of Dr. Kaup’s accomplishments. Her steadfast commitment to the advancement of interior design has raised the profile of Kansas State University and the interior design program in the College of Human Ecology,” said Barbara Anderson, head of the Apparel, Textiles, and Interior Design Department.
“I am honored and humbled to be recognized as one of the Fellows of IDEC” said Kaup. “This group of esteemed educators and scholars have created a lasting legacy for interior design education and the profession.”
