The mission of the Honors College is to provide an enriched educational experience for academically motivated and talented students at Kent State University. We welcome students of diverse backgrounds and are firmly committed to advancing a diverse, inclusive and equitable community of scholars. We affirm that all members of the Honors College community are valued for their contributions and treated with dignity and respect. Each student in the college plays a vital role in enhancing and influencing critical debate, critical thinking and learning from each other through their individual stories and lived experiences. This synergy creates a unique and inclusive foundation on which students can explore and develop their sense of belonging.
