Past Alumni Events
Career Speaker Series - Ron Boisvert ‘73
February 21, 2017 · 6:00 p.m. - 7:15 p.m.
Rhodes Hall - S 203
Keene State alum Ron Boisvert (‘73) is the Chief of the Applied & Computational Mathematics Division at NIST and will be joining us to answer the question: What is it like to work in a research lab in the Federal government? NIST is part of the US Department of Commerce and is the national metrology institute for the U.S. Its mission is to advance the science of measurement in support of both commerce and industrial innovation. This work is quite varied, from helping to define the standard SI units (e.g., the second, meter, kilogram, …) to setting Federal standards for cryptography. Ron will describe the work of NIST and provide examples of how computer scientists and mathematicians contribute to it. In doing so he will provide a glimpse of what such staff members do each day, and what background and training is needed to work there. And, along the way you’ll learn why NIST sells peanut butter, bullets, dust, and urine!
Who should come? All students, all majors and years and especially students interested in the math, computer science, chemistry, physics and manufacturing. Faculty from all disciplines are welcome and urged to come.

4th Annual Inspiring Conversations In Education Conference
March 05, 2016 · 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Young Student Center - Mabel Brown Room & Rhodes Hall
The Inspiring Conversations in Education Conference began four years ago with a small group of Keene State education majors searching for a way to supplement their education at Keene State College and bridge the gap between their college education and future careers. The second conference was an inspirational day that brought back sixteen alumni presenting their success and guidance. The conference was met with high praise and was recognized by Kappa Delta Pi International with a professional Development Chapter Programing Award, putting KSC’s Epsilon Pi Chapter on the world stage.
The ICE Conference is a supportive network for the sharing of ideas between present and future educators, and creates an environment that promotes leadership within the education profession. Research suggests many new teachers yearn for a supportive community of professional peers to discuss curriculum, explore ideas, and problem solve.
Brian Pickering, the 2016 New Hampshire Principal of the Year, will deliver this year’s keynote address. Education alumni will be making presentations throughout the day.
Keene State College Young Student Center Mabel Brown Room
