Office of Human Resources
In response to COVID-19, Kean University has taken steps to reopen campus for the Fall semester which will include a mix of virtual, in-person and hybrid instruction. For more information on this plan, please click here. The Office of Human Resources is open and operating both with in-person and remote staffing in order to minimize the density of people on campus and reduce the potential health risk to our community. However, please know that our team is available and ready to assist with any questions you may have.
