About Us

The Kent State University EHHS Doctoral Student Forum grew out of class discussions among a small group of doctoral students in 2005. The group has offered fall and spring annual retreats and professional development sessions for doctoral students in the college since 2006. The main function of the group is to provide professional development for all doctoral students in the College of EHHS. The organization also strives to open communications among doctoral students as well as to create a collaborative community to encourage doctoral students to work together, as well as with professors within the College.
