Trumbull Campus Diversity Advisory Council Report to UDAC 050408
Mission Statement The Kent State University Trumbull Campus recognizes that, as an institution of higher education, we have the responsibility and are committed to fostering an environment which appreciates and celebrates diversity.

This Campus is enhanced by having a diverse faculty, staff, and student body.
