It's that time of year again! For the past 3 years, more than 1,100 Kent State University employees participated in the On the Move Challenge, a 12-week national corporate competition.

In 2016 Kent State finished in 29th place and received recognition as one of the Top 50 Most Active Employers. In 2017, Kent State finished in 17th Place and in 2018, Kent State finished in 9th place. This year, we’re back for more. Won’t you join Team Kent State?
