It is required to appear in a standard format, including specific items, on all pages and it must include a link to www.kent.edu. This header is required in custom designs as well. University Communications and Marketing’s web team will provide the global header via university wide templates or as a graphic file for external developers. This header may not be altered in any way. The Kent State logo must remain in four color.
