Welcome to Community Geography at Kent State University! Weâ€™re working to connect our students to the city of Kent, Portage County, Northeast Ohio, and beyond.
Kent Stateâ€™s Department of Geography students can offer businesses, government agencies, non-profits, and KSU faculty & staff a variety of geospatial skills. In return, these community groups can provide an opportunity to students to hone their skills, tackle real-life projects, and explore careers in geography.
