Kim Landon, associate professor of journalism, worked as a reporter at several Upstate New York newspapers before joining Utica College in 1979. Since then, she has taught nearly every course in the Journalism curriculum, as well as many Topics in Journalism courses ranging from women war correspondents to documentary film.  Her main interests are women journalists and First Amendment issues, the latter being central to her course in Censorship. In addition, she coordinates Utica College's Banned Book Read-In, which  has been held every fall during national Banned Books Week since 1992. Landon's research  has focused on how journalists make decisions about their careers, and also on women war correspondents.  She has presented her research at national academic meetings and has published in several academic journals. She is a member of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication.

At Utica College, Landon has won the college's Distinguished Teaching Award, the Outstanding Faculty  and the College Service Award awards from the Utica College Alumni Association, the Student Life Faculty Award, the Womyn's Resource Center Mentor Award, and the Outstanding Alumna Award from the Raymond Simon Institute. She served for many years as advisor to the college's student newspaper, the Tangerine, and currently advises the John C. Behrens Chapter of the Society for Collegiate Journalists. Landon is a 1975 graduate of Utica College with a Journalism and a 1985 graduate of Newhouse School of Public Communication at Syracuse University with an M.A. in Newspaper Journalism.
