Study Abroad

Studying abroad not just for students

As part of Kent State University President Lester A. Lefton’s visions for the university, Kent State established an international exchange program with the University of Würzburg, Germany, to broaden students’ educational experiences.

Kent State students were featured on the U.S. News and World Report home page on July 29, 2014. These students traveled to Florence in June as part of our Summer Institute program. The Summer Institute creates more study-abroad access to disadvantaged students – minorities or those from low-income families who might not have had the opportunity to go overseas otherwise.

After learning about Kent State’s campus in Florence shortly after joining Kent State’s School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) in 2010, Assistant Professor Kiersten F. Latham, Ph.D., knew she wanted to create a course abroad.
