Faculty Resources

Below are several references and resources.

Missing Class

If you are unable to be present to teach any of your classes (for any reason), you must contact the Office of Academic Affairs as soon as possible so that the cancellation of your classes can be posted on campus.

How to Notify Academic Affairs of Your Absence

Email (from your kent.edu email) your absence notifications to the email: GEA-TAC-CLASS-CX@listserv.kent.edu. If you are unable to email, call Geauga at 440-834-4187 or Twinsburg at 330-888-6400. Keep in mind that if you leave a voicemail message, your message may not be retrieved that day.

Educational Technology Resources

Educational Technology (Includes Blackboard, Kaltura, and more)


The CARE Team at Kent State University at Geauga exists to gather isolated concerns in one location to be examined as possible patterns of behavior and to coordinate a supportive, positive outreach toward students with concerning behavior when appropriate.  The cross-functional team prefers to take a proactive approach, focusing on early interventions toward distressing student behavior in an attempt to change the behavior before the situation escalates.

Early Alert System

Early Alert is a reporting system that allows faculty to identify students who are presenting patterns that may lead to academic difficulty. It helps partner them with other campus resources and professionals in order to provide proactive assistance to students. It is important to send Early Alert notices early in the semester. You can access them through Flashline on the Faculty Dashboard page within the Faculty & Advisors category.
