Division of Diversity

In early May, Kent State University's Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, in collaboration with the Fashion School, powered by the Division of Finance and Administration, hosted the Garment Games -- Inclusion By Design, a fashion sportswear design competition.

The diversity event was developed to promote inclusion across all university campuses and surrounding communities and to celebrate and support the 2014 Gay Games (GG9) coming to Cleveland/Akron in early August.

Six recent high school graduates who will be starting classes at Kent State University this fall got a head start on their college education by studying abroad at Kent State’s Florence Summer Institute in Florence, Italy.
