CommUNITY Lab is a new four-year cohort program housed in Community Engaged Learning that offers members a network of care and resources at Kent State University while removing financial, academic and personal barriers to success.

CommUNITY Lab students put their passions to purpose by developing effective community problem-solving skills and practicing service to both self and others.

Participants reside in a Living-Learning Community located in Lake Hall where they learn through specially selected courses, plug into campus resources and co-create individualized achievement plans with their support networks. Additionally, CommUNITY Lab provides signature hands-on learning and development opportunities including service, mentorship, student employment and immersive travel experiences.

Incoming students for the 2021-2022 cohort include students from the I PROMISE Program, supported by the LeBron James Family Foundation, and students graduating from the District of Columbia College Access Program (DC-CAP).
