Welcome to the home page for the Division of Academic Affairs at Kent State University.
As Provost, I oversee all academic programs across our ten colleges and schools and eight campuses. Kent State University is the largest public multi-campus system in northeast Ohio, with campuses reaching nine local communities and a population of over 40,000 students. We are proud of our outstanding faculty and staff, students, collaborative culture, exceptional academic and research orientation, and strong commitment to engagement, academic excellence, and diversity. Times Higher Education has ranked Kent State as one of the top 200 universities in the world. According to the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education, KSU is one of 77 public research universities that maintain “high research activity.” The Carnegie Foundation has designated KSU as a Doctoral/Research University Extensive, one of only 90 public institutions nationwide in this category. The university is an engine for economic, cultural, and workforce development.
Thank you for your interest in Kent State University. We are proud of our university and encourage you to visit campus to see for yourself all of the opportunities our community offers.
