Office of the Provost

Welcome to the home of academic affairs at Kent State University. We are glad you are interested in this great university.

As Provost, I oversee all academic programs, including our ten colleges and schools, our eight campuses, and a variety of programs such as Undergraduate Studies, Faculty Affairs, and Quality Initiatives and Curriculum. 

Kent State is northeast Ohio's largest university and the second largest higher educational institution in the state. Our size is matched by our high standards and outstanding quality, and recently we were named one of the world's top 200 universities by Times Higher Education
