Home / About KYP

The Kent Young Professionals group targets any University employee that identifies themselves as a young professional.

KYP is focused on three goals:

  • To provide opportunities for its members to grow professionally;
  • To organize service options and give its members a chance to give back to the greater community;
  • To serve as a base to meet other young professionals in the area.

In reaching these goals KYP will leverage cross-divisional collaboration, will increase university pride and engagement, and will build stronger relationships with the greater community



Through a collaborative spirit, we will support and build this Young Professional community through opportunities for networking, service and professional development offered to employees across the University system.



To foster a culture of engagement, empowerment, and fulfilment for young professionals at Kent State University.
