Dear Alumni and Friends,

As the new dean of the College of Education, Health, and Human Services, I am excited to get to know all of our extraordinary alumni and valued friends. There is a sense of energy in the air in EHHS as we forge ahead to achieve new heights. The beauty of the Kent State University campus is a daily inspiration. There is truly no better time to be a part of our EHHS and Kent State family.

Your gifts change the lives of our students, faculty, and our community. Whether it’s a scholarship, an endowed position, support for research, improvement of facilities, your gifts allow us to attract and retain top students and world-class faculty. In turn, those students and faculty are able to respond to emerging societal needs and make our world a better place.

As your dean, I am honored to serve you, and I look forward to meeting our many generous donors. Together, we can shape the future. The College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences is one of Kent State Universities' largest, and our programs are among the best in the nation. An investment in our future will allow us to maintain record enrollment, conduct groundbreaking research, develop talented students, and support renowned faculty.

On behalf of us all, thank you!


James Hannon, Ph.D., Dean
