Kent State University Research Corporation


In June 2018, the Kent State University Board of Trustees passed a resolution authorizing the establishment of the Kent State University Research Corporation (“KSURC”) to promote research opportunities on our Kent Campus, as well as our seven Regional Campuses in Ohio. KSURC improves the university’s research efforts and allows the university to apply for research funding that has not been available to us in the past.

As a 501(c)(3) status, the KSURC has assumed management responsibility for the Centennial Research Park (“CRP”), located at 1950 St. Rt. 59 in Kent, Ohio. The corporation also increases responsiveness to CRP tenants, and creates more opportunities for Kent State faculty and graduate students to collaborate with cutting-edge technology companies who have chosen the CRP and Portage County as their home. The corporation also aims to connect KSU entrepreneurs with resources to support their activities.
