SOLE logoWelcome to the Sole Center. A major mission of the SOLE initiative is to foster evidence-based reform of STEM education, health education, and literacy and language learning, to improve achievement and retention for Kent State students and for K-12 students in the surrounding community.


The SOLE initiative will be aimed at meeting a number of different objectives. The objectives largely pertain to developing bench-to-bedside models for education research, which involve supporting cutting-edge and potentially fundable research in the laboratory, in the classroom, and in the field.
