Kent State University/Turner School of Construction Workshop Series

This nine-month program explores the three-way intersection between private construction, state construction, and the academics of construction as well as the regulations they entail. We are building onto Turner’s existing construction-management training program and integrating it into Kent State by providing this 3-way intersection. The overall goal of the program is to develop contractors who have been identified by Kent State Supplier Diversity office as well as the Office of the University Architect and acclimate them into our processes. Read the article discussing the program on Crains Cleveland.
