A Message from the President
My senior team and I traveled to Wenzhou-Kean University for the first time during my presidency while our Government Affairs team led a delegation to Washington, D.C. for our first Kean Day on Capitol Hill. This international and national presence reflects the University’s growing profile since being designated as a national university and the state’s first urban research university. The impact of both trips will be felt for years to come.
Kean University is excited to celebrate the Class of 2023! This year’s Graduate Commencement will take place at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, on Tuesday, May 16, at 11 a.m. Undergraduate Commencement will be held at the Prudential Center in Newark, on Thursday, May 18, at 8:30 a.m.
