Ensuring Student Success Metrics

A focus on students, which includes everything from a spirit of friendliness to excellent instruction to a range of high-quality services, will create a graduation-oriented, high-tough culture at Kent State. Doing so will let students know that the faculty and staff care deeply about them individually and about their unique routes to success. Doing so will produce more, and more successful Kent State Graduates.
