The office of the School of Health Sciences is housed in Nixson Hall and supports programs in Athletic Training, Exercise Science/Physiology, Health Education & Promotion, Integrated Health Studies, Nutrition & Dietetics, Speech Pathology & Audiology and Sports Medicine.
We are a School that extends beyond our boundaries and the city of Kent - we are full of promise and opportunities for our students and faculty to reach their fullest potential. Our focus has been student success, global engagement, diversity, securing our financial future, lifelong learners, and expanding breakthrough research and creative endeavors. Each of the aforementioned is reflective of key areas that are involved in Strategic Priorities in the Golden Road to Student Success.
We have all been faced with great challenges throughout the pandemic. When the call came for assistance, faculty and staff in the School of Health Sciences quickly pivoted to remote teaching and communication.
As we move forward to this exciting new year, we and ask what’s next? At Kent State University and the School of Health Sciences, in this post-pandemic period, we are now at a unique position to enhance the already strong research and teaching programs that we provide for the campus community. This is very exciting and invigorating.
