Faculty

The faculty of the CIS department at IWU brings a wealth of experience to the classroom, both academic and professional. All three faculty members have PhDs in their respective fields. In addition to their years of academic experience, they also bring in practical experience from both business and the military. Their areas of specialization include machine hardware, software engineering and Internet program development. Overriding all of their knowledge is a deep and abiding faith, a faith that shows through in their classrooms and their lives.

Biography

From Dr. Kiteck:

“I love teaching at IWU because of the authentic Christian fellowship, the curious and fun-loving students, and being a part of such a high quality academic community.  Two students immediately come to mind—I had an absolute blast advising the brilliant Tyler (2011) and Matthew (2014) in deep, uncharted—so never done before—mathematics, and I look forward to new adventures with students.  I am proud of Tyler whose work was published in a respected journal of mathematics (http://msp.org/involve/2013/6-4/p04.xhtml ).  We have math alumni literally all over the world in the areas of education, government, and industry. One cannot go wrong majoring in mathematics—and not only in terms of one’s future career, but also in terms of intellectual and personal growth.  Mathematics literally touches on all aspects of life.  In IWU’s math classes, students have told me that they have been very challenged, but at the same time have had tons of fun.  The math students grow close—I know just recently math grads met together at an informal reunion.  If you have ANY questions, please do NOT hesitate to contact me (daniel.kiteck@indwes.edu ) or any of our other math faculty.”

Dr. Kiteck joined IWU in 2008. He was born and raised in Somerset, Kentucky. As a student he loved the Christian community of Asbury University, and he is now ecstatic about being a professor in the beautiful Christian community at IWU. Dr. Kiteck teaches a wide variety of math classes at IWU with Modern Abstract Algebra being one of his favorites.  Dr. Kiteck absolutely LOVES mathematics, so he is constantly learning more.  But, for as much as he loves mathematics, he loves, Loves, LOVES his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ infinitely more. He also Loves, LOVES being with his wife Karen and children Nathanael Arden (b. 2009), Cherish Grace (b. 2011), and Paisley Joy (b. 2013).
