Partnerships are a vital link between OUR College and Graduate School of Education Health and Human Services and the pre K-12 schools for which we prepare our students. KSU's College and Graduate School of EHHS has established three tiers of partnership activity:
The Kent Affiliated Districts. These are school districts in which university students complete various assignments or internships. Over 150 school districts partner with the College and Graduate School of Education, Health, and Human Services at this level.
The Kent Educational Network for Tomorrow Alliance (K.E.N.T. Alliance), an expansion of EHHS 's original partnership organization. It is composed of 30 school districts and social service agencies that work extensively with the College and Graduate School of Education Health and Human Services.
