More than 60% of rural Americans live in areas the National Institute of Health deems to be underserved by mental health professionals and only about 20% of social workers nationwide are employed in rural areas, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. These stats, coupled with the high demand for licensed social workers — especially in areas like those surrounding Kent State University’s Regional Campuses — produce significant disparities and gaps in care for people needing social services.
Filling in those gaps is the primary aim of program director Matt Butler and the Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program through Kent State’s College of Applied and Technical Studies (CATS), which will have an emphasis on rural social work.
At the end of the 2022 fall semester, the Columbiana County campuses literary journal, Black Squirrel Scholars, held a short fiction writing contest and the winners were announced at the beginning of the new semester.
Kent State Columbiana County Campuses will be a host for this multi-campus open house event.
Kent State University is inviting prospective students and families throughout Northeast Ohio to explore its Regional Campus System at a unique, simultaneous open house event.
The inaugural Blue & Gold Night begins at 5:30 p.m. March 21.
