Homelessness is a widespread public health issue that affects college students across the United States and inhibits their academic and professional growth. Kent State University is not sheltered from homelessness which is demonstrated by ubiquitous anecdotal evidence experienced by many students here at Kent State University main campus. My public health interventions I class implemented an awareness-based intervention in the student center during Hunger and Homelessness Week with the ultimate goal being to reduce homelessness at Kent State University. Our community partner was Flashes Fighting Hunger which was an organization comprised of students and faculty dedicated to reducing hunger and homelessness at Kent State University. After the intervention was implemented, we found that the community discourse surrounding homelessness among students was lacking, and most importantly that there is a significant lack of quantitative evidence surrounding homelessness at Kent State University.
