Each respective college on Kent’s campus has a designated administrator or faculty appointed to serve as the Academic Diversity Officer (ADO). The ADO’s specific role and responsibilities vary depending on the college, but all share the commonality of serving to support, assist, and advocate for students of color and underrepresented student populations within their college.
The ADO for the College of Arts & Sciences is Kris Braxton. Kris is from Columbus, Ohio and first came to Kent State in 2008 as an undergraduate student. Kris is a proud alum of the College of Arts & Sciences as he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in History in 2013. Feel free to reach out to Kris with any questions or concerns regarding diversity, equity, or inclusion related matters. You can reach Kris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
