Recruit. Retain. Develop.

At Kent State University, we define diversity as differences that come in a variety of socioeconomic levels, opinions, abilities, experiences, cultures, races, ethnicities, genders, gender identities and expressions, national origins, religions, languages, appearances, personalities, and many other types of human distinctions between individuals and groups.  In summary, diversity can be be defined as the presence of difference.

Diversity is valued as a universal approach to increasing the quality of education.  Diversity is the core principle, which in its broadest sense incorporates equity and inclusive excellence. 


Our mission is to recruit, retain, and develop students from underrepresented and diverse populations to help them successfully navigate the college process from admission through graduate school and career achievement.  


To be exemplary in our collective commitment to preparing our EHHS and local community members to meet the ever changing diversity needs of our society; thus reducing barriers to learning and education.
