Insurance Studies Preps for Gamma Iota Sigma Charter

Insurance Studies Students Prep for GIS CharterOn November 7, the Insurance Studies program at Kent State Salem will achieve another first for the university, and for the state, when it receives its official charter from the national office of Gamma Iota Sigma, the international risk management, insurance and actuarial science collegiate fraternity.

The event will take place during a dinner sponsored by MAPFRE Insurance, an organizational member of the Kent State Insurance Advisory Board. The program will include students, faculty, insurance advisory board members and program donors.

Kent State Salem’s insurance studies program was launched in 2012 and was the first insurance degree program offered by an Ohio university in more than 30 years.
