LIKES MOST ABOUT KENT STATE:
First-most, the university staff have been amazing during my onboarding transition. Everyone is friendly and willing to help where they can. Kent State is not just a job, it is a family. Much thought and planning go into all the decisions made at the university. Every event is top notch and impactful. I have never seen a more inclusive university as Kent for there is something for everyone.
ATTRACTION TO KENT STATE AS AN EMPLOYER:
Kent State University is the cinderblock of the Kent community. Their visions and core values are reflected throughout the city. As a longtime Kent resident, I have admired and respected the University and all that they have done for the community.
