Information About Experiential Learning Experiences

Dear Kent State University Faculty, Deans, Chairs and Coordinators,

Experiential learning experiences are a critical part of student learning. As part of Kent State’s reopening effort and keeping the university community safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, several documents have been developed to provide guidance for off-campus sites hosting Kent State students. This guidance also provides information for students and instructors. All the information can also be found on the Experiential Learning Information website. We ask you share this information with your external sites that provide learning experiences for Kent State students.

For external sites: Expectations for Off-Campus Sites Hosting Kent State Students

For instructors: Guidance for Instructors Concerning the Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on the Selection, Approval and Implementation of Experiential Learning Experiences

For students: Guidance for Students Concerning the Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Experiential Learning Experiences

The Experiential Learning Information website also includes program-specific guidance (e.g. College of Podiatric Medicine, College of Nursing, College of Applied and Technical Studies). We encourage each program to evaluate the need for program-specific guidance in addition to general guidance provided by Kent State. If you have developed a program-specific protocol, please send it to Jen Abate ( for review. After approval, the protocol will then be added to the experiential learning website.
