Better Together, Beyond Differences


At Kent State University Columbiana County Campuses, East Liverpool and Salem, we have adopted our diversity definition from the Kent campus department of Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI). We have diversity at Salem and East Liverpool. It comes in the form of first-generation students, adult learners, and student veterans, LGBTQ students, students with disabilities (physical & learning), Appalachian students, students in poverty, agnostic students and international faculty. 


So that our students can thrive in a globalized society, our mission is to support, collaborate with and provide transformational institutional progressive (TIP) activities that educate and advocate for awareness and appreciation of diversity, equity, and inclusion and the value that each brings to our campus, our curriculum, our careers and our community.
