School Notes:

Since its founding as a teacher-training school in 1910, Kent State has become an engine for economic, cultural and workforce development in the region and beyond as one of the premiere Ohio colleges. The university also has earned acclaim for applying new knowledge to address the needs of the communities it serves and society as a whole. Kent State Stark began in 1912, when John McGilvery, the new president of the Kent Normal School, decided to take teacher education directly into the communities of Northeastern Ohio. From that point on, Kent State's regional campus programs have set a high standard for locally based college and university education. Stark County has been the recipient of Kent's extension and off-campus programs since the very beginning. In 2006, we will celebrate 60 years of Kent State's continuous service to the people and businesses of Stark County. Located on 200 acres in Jackson Township, the Stark Campus is the largest regional campus of Kent State University, serving nearly 4,000 students each year. The campus consists of six major buildings and a natural pond and offers three associate degrees and eight complete bachelor degree programs in English, history, justice studies, middle childhood education, business management, nursing, general studies and psychology. The campus also offers a master of business administration degree. Nearly 90 percent of Kent State Stark's full-time faculty hold the highest academic credentials in their field. The campus boasts the Professional Education and Conference Center as Northeast Ohio's most technologically advanced meeting, training and events facility. Kent State Stark offers several academic program opportunities in the associate, baccalaureate and master's degree levels. Students can earn a bachelor's degree on the Stark Campus in business management, English, general studies, history, justice studies, middle childhood education, nursing or psychology. The campus also offers the core courses of Kent's 272 undergraduate programs. Kent State Stark recently began offering a full master's of business administration degree program at convenient evening hours for busy adults. Kent State University is accredited without reservation by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
