Academic S.T.A.R.S. (Students Achieving and Reaching for Success) is a cultural transition and retention program designed for newly admitted African-American, Latinx American, Hispanic, Native American and Multiracial freshmen. The program helps to prepare students to achieve academic success, enrich their college experience and explore their cultural heritage.

 

As a result of participating in the program, we hope students will:

  • Develop academic, personal, professional and social skills
  • Establish a community with peers, faculty and staff at Kent State University 
  • Enrich their cultural identity and self-awareness
