Kean University

Founded in 1855, Kean University was the first public post-secondary institution in New Jersey. With a rich history of excellence and innovation in higher education, Kean is a world-class, vibrant, and diverse university offering more than 50 undergraduate majors and more than 60 options for graduate study, including six doctoral programs in a variety of disciplines.

From its roots as a teacher’s college, Kean University in Union, New Jersey has grown into a comprehensive, global institution of higher education serving a diverse enrollment of more than 16,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Kean's mission is to provide an affordable, accessible, and world-class education that prepares students to think and respond critically and creatively in a rapidly changing world.

The University continues its legacy as a top producer of teachers in New Jersey and is a growing educational hub in the fields of business, health care and technology. Its six undergraduate colleges - the College of Business and Public Management; the College of Education; the College of Liberal Arts; the College of Natural, Applied and Health Sciences; Michael Graves College; and the New Jersey Center for Science, Technology and Mathematics - offer more than 50 undergraduate degrees over a full range of academic subjects. Nathan Weiss Graduate College offers six doctoral degree programs and more than 60 options for graduate study leading to master's degrees, professional diplomas, or certifications. Kean University is the only public university in the United States to have a campus in China. Wenzhou-Kean University is an English-speaking campus for Chinese, Kean USA and international students located on a 500-acre campus in the foothills of Wenzhou, China.

The University is also a higher education innovator within the State of New Jersey. Kean Ocean in Toms River, a partnership with Ocean County College, offers a Kean University degree on a community college campus. The university is also developing Kean Skylands, a new campus in Morris County designed to serve as an outdoor living laboratory for field-based scientific study and other classroom and field instruction.

Kean's Human Rights Institute holds an annual conference and offers a broad range of programs to raise awareness of human rights violations worldwide and inspire action among students, teachers, and the general public. With five theatres on campus, Kean Stage and the award-winning Premiere Stages contribute to the intellectual life of the community with programs, plays and concerts that reflect the ethnic and cultural diversity of central and northern New Jersey. Five galleries on the main campus conduct an eclectic exhibition program that often integrates the visual arts with academic programs.

Kean's more than 130 academic, professional interest and philanthropic student groups add to the vibrant campus life. The University fields 14 Division III men's and women's athletic teams and has eight sports facilities, including Harwood Arena and Kean Alumni Stadium. Students also participate in a full schedule of intramural and recreational athletic activities.

The Kean faculty is recognized for teaching distinction, scholarship, and service. Kean remains committed to excellence in higher education and continuing its long tradition of access, opportunity and affordability for students seeking a college degree. Each year, Kean proudly builds on this distinguished history, as it stays focused on guiding students to academic and professional success.
