Associate Vice President of Economic Development Tyler Reinagel, who joined KSU in Summer 2021 and met with Chamber leadership through the fall, sees this summit as a critical step to take to ensure community leaders area aware and learn how to engage with the university and its assets.

“As I met with Chamber leadership throughout metro Atlanta and northwest Georgia, there was a real sense of excitement and energy about the resources that KSU can contribute to their communities,” said Reinagel.

During the Summit, leadership and faculty members from Kennesaw State’s colleges will provide insights into the academic programs offered by the University as well as the efforts in place to support the development of a highly educated workforce. Chamber leaders will also have the opportunity to help shape the five-year Economic Development and Community Engagement Strategic Plan by sharing their thoughts on how their offices and the University can work more closely to building a better Georgia.

“Being part of such a dynamic and growing region is part of KSU’s identity,” said Reinagel. “The best way to share the story of what KSU has become in recent years is to invite our neighbors to campus and share the innovation, academic resources, and cultural activities that Kennesaw State has to offer.”
