We are here for you.
Below are the areas within this pillar.
Center for Student Involvement
The Center for Student Involvement (CSI) fosters student engagement through various involvement opportunities.

The experiences offered through the Center for Student Involvement will broaden your academic experience and assist you later in life.
The FLASHcard is your Kent State University ID card and more. Your card will let you take materials out of the Kent State libraries, access services such as Student Recreation & Wellness Center and athletic events, and purchase goods and services both on and off campus. If you have a food plan, you will use your FLASHcard to purchase meals in our dining halls.
The Flash Books program is an innovative way to tap into your course materials. Access is provided as soon as an instructor makes the course available to students for required materials through Blackboard. In turn, the cost to the student is drastically reduced for the Interactive digital course materials/textbooks. In addition, we have enhanced our textbook model to instantaneously provide access to the course materials while also improving affordability.
