Prioritizing Student Success: Global Education

global education


At Kent State, we encourage students and faculty to push beyond their comfort zone, all the way to South Dakota, New York, Florence, Geneva, Ghana and beyond. By immersing themselves in new cultural and learning experiences, they return to campus forever changed, with the confidence and broadened perspective that will set the world alight.


As Kent State defines its distinctiveness as a national public research university, we are committed to positioning the university for success in an increasingly global environment. Efforts to enhance the university’s global competitiveness are focused on continuing to increase the enrollment of  international students and providing high-quality global education opportunities for all students.


Kent State offers students the possibility to study across the globe, including programs in Italy, France, Germany, South Korea, Brazil, Czech Republic, Switzerland and China. Study Abroad participation grew by 6.4% during the 2017 academic year and the number of students studying in Florence, one of the most popular destinations, was at a record high.
