The primary concern of the East Liverpool Campus is the student. As set forth in the Constitution of Kent State University.

The University's primary concern is the student, it endeavors to provide the academic atmosphere, the human association and the discipline vital to the student's sound intellectual growth and character development. The various programs of curricular and extracurricular activities are designed to stimulate curiosity, broaden perspective, enrich awareness, deepen understanding, establish disciplined habits of thought, provide preparation for a vocation and help in realizing the potential of students as individuals and informed members of society.

The East Liverpool Campus remains dedicated to the goals of Kent State University and the Regional Campuses, as set forth by the Ohio Department of Higher Education. This includes offering quality instruction in the baccalaureate program, including Kent Core courses, associate degree programs, technical programs leading to an associate degree, selected baccalaureate degrees, upper division and graduate resident credit courses, and continuing studies/workforce development.

The Regional Campuses are also expected to meet the special needs of the communities served, to the extent that resources permit. Within these general parameters, the East Liverpool Campus has established and has been implementing the following specific goals and objectives:

  • To offer sufficient coursework so that any student may complete specific Associate Degree technical programs which meet Ohio Department of Higher Education and Kent State University standards.
  • To offer baccalaureate courses leading to the Associate of Arts and the Associate of Science Degrees in General Studies; and to include selected upper division and graduate courses leading to various baccalaureate and graduate degrees.

Each semester the East Liverpool Campus offers courses to meet the individual needs of students or community members who wish to add to their specific knowledge or who wish simply to improve their job value or to be re-trained.
