National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity partnership helps faculty across their career
In a partnership between Academic Affairs and Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Kent State has an institutional membership with the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD). NCFDD offers a faculty success program that provides mentoring across a variety of disciplines and from a variety of universities to help junior faculty plan for promotion and tenure or more seasoned faculty launch new interests.
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.
The U.S. Department of Education has awarded Kent State University a nearly $1.2 million, five-year TRIO Educational Opportunity Centers program grant. The program is designed to provide support services to qualified adults, including veterans, who want to enter or continue a program of postsecondary education.
Kent State University Senior Vice President and Provost Melody Tankersley, Ph.D., announced the selection of Manfred van Dulmen, Ph.D., to serve as the university’s associate provost for academic affairs and dean of the Division of Graduate Studies, effective April 16.
