Kean is the third largest public university in New Jersey, and the largest producer of teachers in the state. Today, the University boasts New Jersey’s first comprehensive program dedicated to the development of a new generation of mathematics, science and technology teachers and researchers—the New Jersey Center for Science Technology and Mathematics (NJCSTM).

The University is home to Liberty Hall Museum a historic landmark housing some of the last undiscovered treasures of the American Revolution and the birth of our nation. The University officially acquired Liberty Hall in 2007. Our History Department currently is cataloguing thousands upon thousands of previously undiscovered manuscripts from the Revolutionary War period on.

With so much to offer, students who graduate Kean University leave well-prepared for success in careers… and life, in general. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
