Kent State University (also known as Kent, Kent State, and KSU) is a public research university located in Kent, Ohio, United States. The university has eight campuses around the northeast Ohio region with the main campus in Kent being the largest. Other campuses are located in Ashtabula, Burton, East Liverpool, New Philadelphia, North Canton, Salem, and Warren, Ohio.

The university was established in 1910 as the Kent Normal School as a teacher-training school. The first classes were held in 1912 at various locations and in temporary buildings in Kent. Since then, the university has grown to include several additional baccalaureate and graduate programs of study in the arts and sciences, research opportunities, as well as over 1,000 acres (405 ha) and 119 buildings on the Kent campus. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, the university was known internationally for its student activism in opposition to US involvement in the Vietnam war, due mainly to the events of May 4, 1970.

Total university enrollment stands at 41,365 as of September 2010, with 26,589 students at the Kent Campus making it the second-largest university in Ohio.[4][5] It is ranked by the Carnegie Foundation as one of the top 77 public research universities in the US and one of the top 76 in community engagement.[6] Kent State was recently ranked as one of the top 200 universities in the world by Times Higher Education.[7] Kent State offers over 300 majors, among them 250 baccalaureate, 40 associate, 50 masters, and 23 doctoral programs of study,[8] which include such notable programs as nursing, liquid crystals, business, history, library science, aeronautics, journalism and fashion design.
