Make a commitment to a better Kent State TrumbullPosted Nov. 2, 2010
The 100 Commitments is a university-wide initiative designed to engage members of the university community in personally taking responsibility for making changes that promote acceptance, understanding, and mutual respect for one another.
Out of Kent State University President Lester A. Lefton's the "Year of Yes" speech, the charge was given to initiate the University Strategic Plan as it relates to our quest for Excellence in Action. One part of this Strategic Plan calls for a more welcoming, inclusive atmosphere for our students, faculty and staff.
Dr. Brown with the Division for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion has commissioned 100 Commitments as the way for the university to bring Inclusive Excellence to Kent State University.
Sign up to participate in Kent State University's 100 Commitments, and receive a free t-shirt or wristband, by stopping by the Lower Commons, located in the Kent State Trumbull Classroom/Administration Building, on any of the following days/times:
· Wednesday (11/3) – 10AM – 7PM
· Thursday (11/4) - 10AM – 7PM
· Monday (11/8) - 10AM – 7PM
· Tuesday (11/9) – 10AM – 7PM
By participating, you are being asked to attempt at least 50 percent of the 100 Commitments and to actively be involved in Inclusive Excellence at Kent State University.
What are some of the 100 Commitments?
