FWA Guidelines

Kent State University strives to create a culture of health and wellness for students and employees at all Kent State campuses. To that end, we are committed to fostering a workplace environment that is flexible and recognizes employees’ ongoing navigation of career and life responsibilities. Kent State permits flexible work arrangements, at the discretion of campus Deans, department heads or their designees, to enable staff and management to meet university goals and help employees balance personal and professional responsibilities. Flexibility in the workplace, a business practice used to manage people, time, space, and workload more effectively, efficiently, and responsively, supports a variety of priorities and university-level initiatives related to recruitment and retention, sustainability, staff excellence, and employee well-being. These include our healthy campus initiative, Kent State of Wellness, and the Great Place Initiative.
