The National Collegiate Honors Council has named recent Kent State University graduate Megan Swoger a 2018 Portz Scholar.

Ms. Swoger is the ninth Kent State student to receive the honor since the inception of the Portz Scholars competition in 1990.

“We are very pleased for her and, of course, delighted that another Honors College student at Kent State has become a Portz Scholar,” said Alison Smith, Ph.D., dean of Kent State’s Honors College. “This is really great news.”

Kent State's Julia Ryan heads to Washington D.C. to stand up for women's rights.

Kent State University’s College of Arts and Sciences seeks to establish a faculty-led academic unit that will enable the expansion and integration of LGBT Studies and Women’s Studies programs. In the coming weeks, an advisory group of faculty and students will help develop the mission and structure of the new Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality.
