Kent State Together
How can I help others and stay safe?
As we navigate new realities in the wake of COVID-19, many of us are looking for ways to have a positive impact while following all directives and advice issued by the Governor and the Ohio Department of Health.
Community Engaged Learning has organized "Kent State Together," a collection of virtual volunteering opportunities that enable all of us to make a difference while staying safe and healthy. Some opportunities are tailored to Kent State University and the surrounding region and others are more national in scope. No general registration is required to participate, though participation in particular projects may require submitting a form or sending an email. Simply click on a project or two (or five!) and follow the instructions provided.
We ask that you take a picture or brief video as you tackle a project and post it on social media so that we all can recognize the impact we are having and how it's building community. Be sure to use the hashtag "#FlashesGiveBack" and tag our office's account in each post! Community Engaged Learning has accounts on the following social media platforms:

Where should I go to find COVID-19 emergency resources?
The Kent State Dean of Students office has a COVID-19 Emergency Resources Page that contains a variety of information about resources available to the university community.
Who should I contact if I have a question?
For the most part, each of the projects has its own contact person. You can find this in the project details by clicking on the project title and reviewing the additional information that appears.
