Campus to Community

The Campus to Community Forum is a new series developed by KSU’s Office of Economic Development and Community Engagement to bring together University and industry experts to engage in a dialogue about some of the state’s most pressing topics.

The series debuted Sept. 29 with a discussion centered on Georgia's tourism industry, featuring panelists Leonard Jackson, director of KSU’s Hospitality Management program, Kim Franz, director of programs and events for Cobb Travel & Tourism, and Dale Kaetzel, park president for Six Flags Over Georgia, who discuss the challenges and the future of an industry that currently supports more than 410,000 jobs across the state. 

Here's a look at the four Campus to Community Forums that the Office of Economic Development and Community Engagement will host this academic year:
Tourism, Sept. 29
Housing, Nov. 7
Community Improvement Districts, Feb. 9 
Small business development, April 25
