Message from the Alumni Director

Kean Alumni are on the move and our volunteers are organizing new ways for you to engage with one another!  The Miami Chapter of Kean Alumni held their kickoff event June 10th, which drew a good crowd of Floridians who were eager to connect.  The Palm Beach/Broward Chapter of Kean Alumni will hold another event this fall. 

Additionally, we have a new Kean MBA Alumni group forming, which will hold a few events annually.  Their first networking night is tentatively scheduled for October 27th. 

Whatever your affiliation, there is a place for you in the Kean University Alumni Association!

Honoring the Victims of the Orlando Massacre

A moving memorial service for the victims of the massacre in Orlando was held on Tuesday, June 21st, at the Reflection Garden on Kean University’s campus. Members of the Kean community came together in prayerful observance to remember those in the LGBTQ community who were killed and injured in the worst mass shooting in modern American history. Those who gathered offered a moment of silence in solidarity with Orlando, and a bell solemnly tolled after each of the names of the 49 people killed at Pulse nightclub was read.

Kean Foundation
From an early age Rebecca, a native of New Jersey, knew she wanted to make a difference in children’s lives by teaching music. After learning more about Kean’s success with teacher education, Kean was
clearly in her sights. Now in her junior year, Rebecca credits her professors as the most influential figures in her academic journey.

Scholarships enable students like Rebecca to attend and thrive at Kean, gaining a world-class education. Please help us be there for our students by making a gift to the Kean Fund For Excellence!
