 Midvale - Fleming of Midvale, graduated from Kent State University in Kent, Ohio. Fleming was awarded a Master of Science degree in Information Architecture and Knowledge Management from the College of Communication and Information. Fleming received his degree during the summer 2015 commencement ceremony, which was held Aug. 15.

Emily Vincent, the director for University Media Relations at Kent State University wrote, “Fleming is among nearly 1700 students who received bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral, associate and educational specialist degrees during Kent State’s 2015 Summer Commencement ceremony. The university congratulates the Class of 2015 and welcomes them into its illustrious family of more than 227,000 alumni worldwide.” 

Fleming “was the only student from Utah to graduate Kent State this summer,” Vincent said.

The Information Architecture and Knowledge Management (IAKM) degree program at Kent State University prepares students for careers in the emerging fields of health informatics, knowledge management and user experience design. According to the Kent State University website, the program is “dynamic and continually responding to changes in the marketplace for information and knowledge professionals and their evolving skill sets.”

“Kent State University is Northeast Ohio’s leading public research university with more than 41,000 students. The university’s eight-campus system is among the largest regional systems in the country,” Vincent wrote. “Today, Kent State has become an engine for economic, cultural and workforce development – locally and internationally – as one of the premier Ohio universities. The university is ranked among the nation’s 74 public high-research universities and among the top 76 in community engagement by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. An economic impact study showed that Kent State alumni in Northeast Ohio generated $1.6 billion annually in higher workforce earnings and increased productivity for employers that hire them.”

Congratulations to Timothy Fleming on this achievement.
