One of Kent State University’s past presidents is giving the school a million dollars to help students studying the arts. 

Carol Cartwright was president of the university from 1991 to 2006.  She and her husband, Phillip, committed the $1 million estate grant to create the Cartwright Family Fund for Opportunities in the Arts. 

Kent State spokesman Eric Mansfield says the gift is special to everyone associated with the university.

Kent State University is investing in technology to help its student athletes recover from injuries. The school has installed a cryotherapy chamber, making it the first school in the Mid-American Conference to have one.

The chamber uses subzero temperatures to induce a forced regeneration of the body in a short amount of time.

A Kent State University computer-science professor has received a $300,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to further his development of eye-tracking software.

Jonathan Maletic will work with Youngstown State University professor Bonita Sharif on their project, iTrace.

Current technology tracks where viewers’ eyes range on a webpage but doesn’t accommodate scrolling or switching from one page to another, a problem iTrace aims to fix.

Maletic expects his project will help researchers better understand how computer scientists scan lines of code.
