Do You Know FlashPort?
Have you been looking for answers in all the wrong places? Did you know there is an easy way to search for answers to questions related to your role as a faculty member?
FlashPort is a single online entry point through the Faculty Learning and Support Hub Portal accessed at www.kent.edu/flashport or through the Faculty Resources tab in FlashLine.
Recognizing the need for a centralized clearing house of information important to faculty, the steering committee of Kent State’s Center for Teaching and Learning recommended extensive and ongoing collaboration with units across the university in creating the FlashPort. Key resource areas are related to teaching, scholarship, service/governance, benefits/wellness and student concerns.
Visitors to the website also may submit questions and comments or provide additional resources and events for posting. While this portal was created with faculty in mind, the website is open and available for use by the entire university community.
The Kent State University Board of Trustees today established a comprehensive, national search to recruit and select the university’s 13th president.
The events of May 4, 1970, placed Kent State University in an international spotlight after a student protest against the Vietnam War and the presence of the Ohio National Guard ended in tragedy with four students losing their lives and nine others being wounded. From a perspective of nearly 50 years, Kent State remembers the tragedy and leads a contemporary discussion and understanding of how the community, nation and world can benefit from understanding the profound impact of the event.
