  • survey for sustainabilityThe Times Higher Education (THE) SDG Impact Ranking Survey provides KSU the opportunity to measure our university’s progress specifically around SDGs, as well as to highlight the accomplishments of KSU faculty and staff regarding implementing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN-SDG) throughout our campus and service-area communities.  The Division of Global Affairs is collaborating with the Office of Institutional Research and faculty from the College of Architecture and Construction Management of KSU in this project. 

  • covid 19 research projectThe COVID-19 Survey project aims to pilot a prediction model to forecast the infection rate of COVID-19. Through a three-phase research project, the study will develop a prediction model suitable to define red lines of reluctancy to incorporate behavioral change in the community.  
    The objectives of the project are to:     

    a. Identify the social characteristics of adaptive behaviors  
    b. Establish a social carry capacity index of adaptive behaviors  
    c. Develop a trained predicting model to forecast the infection rate  

    The Division of Global Affairs is collaborating with faculty from the College of Architecture and Construction Management, College of Computing and Software Engineering, College of Science and Mathematics and Burruss Institute on the research project and actively seeking external funding.
