About | Kent State University

Excellence in Action: Since 1910 

Kent State University's eight-campus system, among the largest regional systems in the country, serves both the development of a true living/learning approach at the Kent Campus and the regional needs on seven other campuses throughout Northeast Ohio.

The Kent Campus provides the resources and facilities of a large, diverse Ohio university, while the Regional Campuses – Kent State University at Ashtabula, Kent State University at East Liverpool,  Kent State University at Geauga, Kent State University at Salem, Kent State University at Stark, Kent State University at Trumbull and Kent State University at Tuscarawas - offer the friendly, casual atmosphere of small liberal arts colleges.

Today, Kent State has become an engine for economic, cultural and workforce development locally and internationally as one of the premiere Ohio universities.

Kent State is ranked among the nation's 77 public research universities demonstrating high-research activity by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. The Liquid Crystal Institute, for example, conducts research that translates into technologies used globally in laptops, calculators and flat screen televisions.

In 2010, Kent State University celebrated 100 years of guiding students, providing vital resources to Ohio and producing graduates and research that have the power to change communities.
