Crisis Intervention | Women's Center | Kent State University

Crisis Intervention

In the event of an emergency or urgent situation, there are a number of crisis intervention resources available to Kent State University faculty, staff and students, both through Kent State University and in the communities surrounding the eight campuses.

Women’s Center

Staff are available to provide support, resources and referrals to students, faculty and staff around women's health, academic issues and personal issues. Although we may not always be able to provide all you need, we will work with you to help you connect to the appropriate community and campus resources. We know that it can often be the “other things” that get in the way of your ability to be successful in the classroom or your work environment. We are committed to helping you get back on track.


The Women’s Center Pantry is also available with staples such as pasta, sauces, canned fruits and vegetables, rice, tuna, cereal, etc. available free of charge to students, faculty and staff in need. The Women's Center Pantry is available between 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. daily.
