Board of Trustees

The Kent State University Board of Trustees will hold its next regular business meeting Wednesday, Dec. 3. The Board will convene at 2 p.m. in the George Urban Board of Trustees Conference Room, which is located on the second floor of the Kent Campus Library.

Trustees will retire into executive session at 8 a.m. to consider specific topics as provided for under Ohio’s “Sunshine Law.”  

Trustees will meet as a Committee of the Whole from 8:45-10:20 a.m. This will be followed by Board standing committee meetings as follows:

To enable Kent State University to continue its multifaceted efforts to provide students with a high-caliber educational experience, the Kent State Board of Trustees today (May 28, 2014) increased tuition by 2 percent for undergraduate and graduate students on the university’s eight campuses. The increase, which is in keeping with a state-mandated limit on full-time, in-state undergraduate tuition increases for the 2014-15 academic year, is expected to leave Kent State’s tuition ranked in the middle of Ohio’s 13 public universities.

Gov. John Kasich has appointed two new trustees to the Kent State University Board of Trustees. Kasich named Stephen A. Perry of Canton, Ohio, to a nine-year term as a trustee and Perry “PJ” Kimmel of Canfield, Ohio, to a two-year term as an undergraduate student trustee. Perry’s appointment ends May 16, 2023, while Kimmel’s appointment concludes May 16, 2016. 

The Kent State University Board of Trustees will hold a special meeting Monday, Aug. 11, at 9 a.m. in the George Urban Board of Trustees Conference Room, which is located on the second floor of the Kent Campus Library.

Trustees will retire into executive session upon convening to consider specific topics as provided for under Ohio’s “Sunshine Law.” No standing committee meetings will be held, and no recommendations or votes will be discussed or taken.

The Board will hold its next, regular business meeting Wednesday, Sept. 17.
