Message from the Alumni Director

Happy New Year! Did you start the year off making resolutions? If so, we can help.

If you resolved to focus on your career, you may want to take advantage of the career services assistance available to all Kean alumni. We have helpful information for your job search, links to job search tips and resources, and even one-on-one coaching with career counselors in the Career Development and Advancement Office.

If you’ve been dieting or working out and find yourself with clothing that no longer fits, we are accepting donations of gently-used business attire which will be distributed to students for job fairs and interviewing. This can really help our Kean students make a good first impression. Men's and women’s clothing and shoes of all sizes will be accepted in the Office of Alumni Relations, 1000 Morris Avenue, Townsend Hall, Room 122, Union, N.J.

Lastly, if you’re looking to expand your résumé and get involved, we have numerous volunteer opportunities available including committees of the Alumni Board such as Student Engagement , Alumni Events, and the Alumni Leadership Initiative. Check out some options here and email us at to sign up.

We hope we can help you keep your resolutions and start 2017 off right!

Warmest wishes,
