Message from Wayne Hartz, Interim Dean
Our faculty share a common purpose: the success of each one of our students. Bringing deep expertise in their chosen fields, they are committed to sharing that knowledge in ways that will facilitate your learning. Their standards are high because they know that your aspirations are equally high. They will measure your success not only in terms of a program that will carry you through to a degree, but a career well beyond.
We know that the best learning takes place where the following conditions are present: an environment that supports and encourages you to explore; a challenge that helps you to develop and meet your own expectations; and an opportunity that allows you to practice the very skills you will use in the future. And there is a bonus to all of this – you will learn how to learn. That is a skill you will use throughout your lifetime.
Ask any one of our faculty members what brought them to Keene State College, and they will gladly share with you a unique story of how they were inspired to teach by those who taught them. Many are the first in their families to attend college. Others will describe a journey that includes advanced learning, real world experience, ongoing research, collaborative projects with other working professionals, and years of service to the community.
Bring your interest, your unique gifts, your perseverance, and your willingness to immerse yourself in your studies. We will match it.
When students ask us, “Why Keene State?” we tell them about some of the programs they won’t find at other schools. That’s when the excitement happens!

The Marlborough School and Keene State College have been working together for over three years to create a pilot program for a partnership that benefits the children of Marlborough and college students in the elementary teacher education program at Keene State College.
At Keene State College, getting future educators into the classroom can’t happen too quickly. Our innovative pilot program with Marlborough School emphasizes improving outcomes for students and increasing opportunities for KSC teacher candidates. Starting in their sophomore year, Keene State students begin an intensive classroom-based experience that brings their own professors into the school to collaborate with teachers and principals. In their own words, our apprentice teachers talk about how the program has given them the practical experience they were looking for and crystalized their thinking on their future careers in education.
