Mentorship Program helps students connect to faculty and other students
The Ambassador Crawford College of Business and Entrepreneurship’s mentorship program is a unique opportunity for learning community students to connect with experienced business professionals. Students are paired with a professional mentor who works in a field related to the student's interests. Students are also matched with an upperclass business student who serves as a resource during their first year and assists with the transition to college along with navigating their major and business courses. This program provides students direct access to important resources as well as access to a support system during critical stages of their academic and career development. Early in the fall semester, students meet their professional and peer mentors and begin developing their mentoring relationships. Some relationships have even continued into junior and senior years!
For the 10th time, Kent State University is being recognized as a “Great College to Work For,” according to the latest survey by the Great Colleges to Work For program. The program recognizes the colleges that get top ratings from their employees regarding workplace practices and policies.
