Undergraduate Studies to Relocate to University LibraryPosted Jan. 27, 2014 | Shannen Laur
Kent State University’s Division of Undergraduate Studies is temporarily relocating to the fifth floor of University Library for one year to allow for renovations at the Lake/Olson Center as part of Kent State’s “Foundation of Excellence: Building the Future” initiative.
“The Lake/Olson Center will be renovated to allow us to serve our students better,” says Cesquinn M. Curtis, special assistant to the dean of Undergraduate Studies. “The entire division will return to the Lake/Olson Center in spring 2015.”
The relocating departments within the division will move in three separate phases. The Student Success Programs will relocate Jan. 27, the Exploratory Advising Center will move Feb. 3, and the Office of Experiential Education and Civic Engagement, Undergraduate Studies Technology and the Office of the Dean will move Feb. 7.
Three departments within the division will not be affected by the relocation and will remain in the Schwartz Center. These include the Dual Enrollment Programs and the Academic Success Center.
“These projects will support Kent State’s top priorities: academic excellence and success of all students,” Curtis says.
The goal of Undergraduate Studies is to help students achieve academic success at Kent State by providing extensive academic advising services. In addition, the division coordinates advising support throughout the university, assists undecided students with degree and career planning, assesses skills of incoming freshmen and provides support tools for low-income, first-generation and precollege students.
