Faculty Forums/ Faculty Recognition

Research and Innovation Forum - The Research and Innovation Forum is a great way to find out about all the innovative research being done by your colleagues at Kent State. Held twice per semester, the Forum is designed to have three speakers from diverse areas in order to demonstrate the breadth of research/scholarship being conducted at Kent. Each speaker has 15 minutes to present anything they want about their research/creative endeavors geared towards a general audience. This is followed by a reception in which attendees and speakers can interact and possibly develop collaborative ideas.

Faculty Recognition - The OFRD supports a number of awards for faculty. Recognition of award recipients occurs in April of each year during Faculty Recognition Week.

The Outstanding Research and Scholarship Awards (ORSAs)/Excellence in Research Mentoring Awards - These awards honor Kent State's exceptional researchers, scholars, and research mentors. View the list of awardees from 1997 to current and award criteria.
