Centers and Institutes
As Northeast Ohio's premier public university, Kent State University is proud to host many centers and institutes -- each of which supports the institution's teaching, research and public service mission in its own unique way. The university has a long, strong history of public-private partnerships and of sharing the expertise of our world-class faculty and highly trained staff far beyond campus boundaries.
Oftentimes, the research and initiatives produced by these facilities translate to "knowledge at work." It can mean improving Ohio's classrooms through learning technologies, developing the next generation of liquid crystal display nanotechnology or improving the lives of people in depressed areas of the world -- which also creates contacts and markets for Ohio businesses.
