President's Office

Dr. Anne Huot


I hold a deep passion for the liberal arts education that is the core of the Keene State College mission, and I share that passion with our entire college community. The learning environment that our students find is one that fosters exploration, encourages inquiry, and challenges personal growth. Each one of our academic disciplines offers a specialized knowledge base that is taught from the liberal arts perspective – an approach that develops critical thinking, communication, and creativity. And we know that the residential experience that we offer, the small classes and positive interaction with our faculty, and the practices that result in the most enduring learning, are what create a transformative experience for our students.

At Keene State, we prepare our graduates for a lifetime of meaningful work, wherever that journey should take them. We are exceedingly proud of the 33,000 alumni who have discovered their passion for learning here. Equally important to us is to develop citizens who are deeply engaged in their communities, both locally and globally.

These habits of the mind, combined with a commitment to engaged citizenship – the outcomes of a liberal arts education – are what employers and business leaders say they are searching for when they seek to build an educated workforce.

As the 10th president of Keene State College, not only do I share with my predecessors a passion for the liberal arts experience, but I am deeply committed to providing access to a high quality public education for our students. Like many of the students that attend Keene State College, I am a first-generation college student. One of seven children that grew up in a working class family in Manchester, New Hampshire, I understand the importance of accessibility and the commitment that we all share.

At Keene State College, I see a future that is bright for our students, a campus that is embracing, and an educational institution that is a jewel among the University System of New Hampshire and public liberal arts colleges across the country. And I welcome you to this community.

Anne E. Huot, Ph.D.
