Call for Sage Project Nominations
Do you know any phenomenal female-identifying students at Kent State University? Are you interested in recognizing their achievements on a campus level? If so, consider nominating them for the Sage Project.
The Sage Project is a way to recognize female and female-identifying students who have taken their education and time at Kent State into their own hands and who have found balance in following their path and making their mark at Kent State.
While many may consider Sage Project an unusual name at first glance, the Sage Project derives its name from the meaning of sage. In the Native American culture, sage is used for healing and bringing someone’s life back into balance by cleansing the body and mind of negativity. Additionally, sage means wisdom, renewal, harmony and growth. In this spirit, the Sage Project committee is looking to highlight women who have found balance, growth, and/or renewal in their collegiate journey.
Eligible students must be full-time and have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher. Nominators are encouraged to share the connection between leaderships and personal life and the way the student is considering her future, what the applicant brings to her collegiate experience, how the applicant has overcome adversity in her life and used it to shape her time at Kent State, and ways that the applicant is developing toward an empowered person. Nominations are due by Nov. 4.
The Sage Project committee will review nominations and select 10 female students to be a part of the Sage Project. The 10 women will then be interviewed, and their stories will be highlighted on the Women’s Center website during Women’s History Month. Nominees also will be invited to a luncheon during the month to formally recognize their achievements.
