Advocacy and Support

Advocacy and support is one of our three core areas of support and includes advocacy on your behalf and support in a variety of ways while at Kent State. Advocacy and support will look different for each student, but may include assistance interpreting your financial aid package, aiding in the completion of various appeal processes from the One Stop, conduct process support, or connecting you with available resources.

Campus Partnerships

To ensure we provide a holistic experience and are able to assist you in a variety of different ways, we have partnered with many campus departments including One Stop for Student Services, Career Exploration and Development, International Student Affairs, and the McNair Scholars Program.
