Kent State is poised to determine a distinctive future of impact, influence and innovation. In order to continue to serve the communities around us, as well as reach our strategic vision for our university, it is critical to develop a common narrative that will serve all constituents. This narrative needs to tell the story of who we are and what we stand for at Kent State in an authentic and compelling way. Once developed, this story can serve as the defining thread that binds us all to a common and unique vision for this university we call home.
