Upcoming Events

Homecoming 2017

Students, faculty, staff, and alumni are invited to take part in multiple Homecoming events in celebration of the college’s 50th anniversary:

Rebecca Herr’s (’71) advice for students is that “although they can’t be an expert at everything, they need to remain curious.” Herr’s own sense of curiosity became a passion for adventure.  Her appreciation for exploration inspired her to begin mission work in India in 1999, where she has helped mentor nursing students in various clinical areas. Noticing the lack of nursing libraries while there, Herr began collecting nursing textbooks from professors and friends to donate to the students who needed them most.

Around the same time, Herr, and her husband, Eric, also began making donations to the Kent State University College of Nursing study abroad program. They gave when they were able, knowing Kent State played an important role in nursing education. The College of Nursing is meeting the needs of learners and preparing the next generation of leaders in nursing.
