Looking for Nominees for the Sage Project

Do you know 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!Sage Awards

The Sage project is a way to recognize female-identifying students who have taken their education and time at Kent State into their own hands and have found balance in following their path and making their mark at Kent State.

While many may view it as unusual at first glance, the Sage Project gets its name out of 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 female-identifying students 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 leadership and personal life and the way the students are considering their future, what the applicants bring to their collegiate experience, how the applicants have overcome adversity in their life and used it to shape their time at Kent State, and ways that the applicants are developing toward an empowered person.

Nominations are due by Oct. 2.

The Sage Project committee will review nominations and select 10 female-identifying students to be a part of the Sage Project. The 10 students 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.

Questions regarding the Sage Project and the process can be directed to Alicia Robinson at arobin16@kent.edu. For more information and to submit your nomination, visit www.kent.edu/sageproject.
