Katie Kingery-Page is associate dean in the College of Architecture, Planning, and Design at Kansas State University. She leads the office of Student Academic Services and serves APDesign as associate dean for research. She joined K-State and APDesign as an educator in 2004; she is a professor in the department of landscape architecture and regional and community planning.
Her training spans sculpture, art theory, ecology, and landscape architecture. After undergraduate education in sculpture at Wichita State University, Kingery-Page studied ecology and art theory through Antioch College and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and eventually earned a Master of Landscape Architecture degree from Kansas State University. Prior to teaching, she worked in an interdisciplinary design practice focused upon downtown development. She is a licensed landscape architect in the state of Kansas.
Kingery-Page’s inclusive placemaking/placekeeping centers on the many ways public space can be restorative to diverse audiences of people. As an engaged scholar, she has collaborated with colleagues, students, and communities to reveal local knowledge that helps people make meaningful decisions about the future of their places. Her interest in community participation and deliberation has led to projects with Downtown Wichita and a role as affiliate faculty to the Kansas City Design Center. She was honored by the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture for Excellence in Service Learning in 2016 and selected as the 2017 TreanorHL Faculty in recognition of her work to connect youth with career exploration in design and planning. A 2019 Central States ASLA Community Service in Design award recognized her role as project director for the Meadow, a native grassland mini-park on the campus of K-State.
Kingery-Page is dedicated to supporting the future designers and planners of APDesign, from their first exposure to professional education to their alumni experiences as emerging professionals.
