Graduating Needed Talent for Our Nation
One of the results envisioned by President Lefton when he introduced an institutional agenda for excellence is coming to life to the benefit of all Kent State students: A Kent State degree has become a passport to success in every field, with employer surveys showing high levels of satisfaction with new graduates' ability to hit the ground running and a desire to hire more employees educated at Kent State.
Kent State's talented graduates succeeded in many fields from health care to education and from finance to manufacturing. Following graduation, many remain in Northeast Ohio working for such household names as Allstate, American Greetings, Delphi Packard Electric, Goodyear Tire and Rubber, KeyBank, PNC Financial Services, Progressive, Sherwin-Williams and Timken to name just a few. Thousands of others help meet the needs of our region through their employment in hospitals and schools, including colleges and universities.
