Promoting our Scholarship

Kent State’s Scholar of the Month recognizes faculty researchers and scholars whose recent work has had an important impact on their professional fields and has brought exposure to the university. Each month, a different college nominates a researcher/scholar for this recognition. There is also a month when a faculty member from the Regional Campuses is featured. Scholars’ of the Month articles are posted on the Kent State website home page as a featured story and then these stories are archived under the News and Events webpage.
