Kupita/Transiciones (K/T) | Kent State University

Kupita/Transiciones (K/T)


Kupita/Transiciones (K/T) is a free four-day cultural orientation and year-long mentoring program for newly admitted and transfer African American, Latino American, Native American and Multiracial students. K/T kicks-off with the four-day cultural orientation which begins on Monday, August 21st and concludes on Thursday, August 24th, 2017. Spanning over the four-days, students will engage in activities to learn how to successfully navigate their college career by focusing on the cultural and social climate of Kent State University.

As a result of participating in the four-day Kupita/Transiciones (K/T) cultural orientation, we hope students:

  • Feel more connected to Kent State University 

  • Establish their Kent State University La Familia

  • Are affirmed in their cultural identity

  • Gain an appreciation for different cultures 

  • Identify opportunities of engagement at Kent State University 

After students participate in the four-day cultural orientation they seamlessly transition into the K/T Mentoring Program. The K/T Mentoring Program offers students an opportunity to have their mentor from K/T provide continued assistance, guidance and support throughout their entire freshman year. 

Registration for K/T 2017 is Now Closed.
