Message from Dean Spake
 
 

Dear College of Business Administration community,

I hope you and yours are well during this unusual time. Over the past month, Kent State faculty and staff have successfully transitioned to remote teaching and working. In all, 9,279 Kent State face-to-face courses were moved to remote learning platforms including more than 200 business courses in less than a week. This tremendous effort on the part of College of Business Administration faculty was supported by instructional designers Amy Grincewicz and Tim Kohn. In addition, Senior IT User Support Analyst Anoop Uchil and his team shifted their work to provide technology-related resources to faculty as they moved to remote instruction. My deep thanks go to our faculty and staff who quickly changed course during an uncertain time to meet the needs of our students.

In addition, the university made the following decisions to help students over the past few weeks:

  • Changes to the existing grading policies of Pass/Fail and Course Withdrawal for spring 2020 have been implemented.
  • Academic advising is taking place via email, phone and the use conferencing technology.
  • Resources have been made available to all students, faculty, and staff for mental/physical health.
  • Kent State’s scholarship deadline for first-year students has been extended to May 1.
  • The deposit deadline for new students has been extended to June 1.
  • While Spring Commencement ceremonies and pre-commencement celebrations have been postponed, a Virtual Ceremony is planned for Saturday, May 9, at 11 a.m. EST at www.kent.edu/commencement. Students will receive individual name recognition and participate in conferral of degrees and a tassel turning ceremony.

As we finish out the spring semester, we are determined to ensure the continuity of the College’s mission to provide global impact through innovative education, leading research, and meaningful engagement with the business community.
