- 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. The Warren Academic Center was granted campus status by the legislature in 1965, and became the Trumbull Campus of Kent State University. In December of 1966, the Trumbull County Commissioners offered to deed a 134.7 acre site to the University for a branch campus. By June of 1968, preliminary plans for a new campus facility were approved by the State, and completion of the building was targeted for 1970. With almost 800 students enrolled, the campus continued to operate in 1969 and 1970 in four leased facilities in Warren. The Fall of 1970 saw classes begin in the long-awaited facility, with approximately 1025 students, and high hopes for the future. Kent State's Trumbull Campus, offers programs at the freshman and sophomore level in 170 majors, along with 18 certificates and 15 associate degree programs, with junior/senior level coursework for baccalaureate degree completion in nursing, justice studies, technology, business management, English, psychology and general studies. The campus' new 68,000-square-foot Technology Building supports a variety of technology degree programs, and the new Workforce Development and Continuing Studies Center's program offerings include certification for professionals, and an Adaptive Technology Lab that provides education and training to individuals with special needs. Kent State University Trumbull Campus offers classes and academic coursework leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree in justice studies, as well as computer technology education and bachelor's degrees available in such areas as English, industrial technology and general studies.

We look at why millions of Americans are choosing community college over a traditional four-year school today.
Many students enroll in community college with the intent of transferring to a four-year school. Of those who do, many succeed, and yet traditional colleges and universities continue to overlook them. Read on to learn more about why more community college students don’t transfer schools and to receive some tips for making the transfer yourself.
Community college is the only option for many students who either can’t afford a traditional four-year university or who need a more flexible school environment. Just because community college is different, however, doesn’t mean that its students matter any less. The Aspen Prize exists to encourage community colleges to do more for their students and to continually strive for improvement.
