CPM Faculty and Staff Celebrate 20 or More Years

Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine (CPM) has only existed in its current form for eight years. Formerly known as the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine, it was acquired by Kent State University in 2012, which has afforded students and employees an array of new opportunities and resources.

While our alumni may still be warming up to the idea of being a Golden Flash, or may not recognize the CPM campus in Independence, many of them have formed lasting connections to the nineteen unique individuals that have worked for the college for two, three and even four decades. 

Please join CPM in recognizing the nineteen faculty and staff members who have been with the College for twenty years or more – through the move to Independence, the merge with Kent State University, and the graduation of thousands of doctors of podiatric medicine.
