Keene State College is a founding member of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges (COPLAC), and its mission is to ensure the goals of a liberal education are realized.
Beginning in 2003, Keene State College embarked on another journey to revise its general education curriculum. On April 19, 2006, the new Integrative Studies Program (ISP) was approved by the College Senate. In 2007 the ISP was implemented. The program has three sets of outcomes (intellectual skills, perspectives and interdisciplinary outcomes and integrative outcomes).
Key to the design of the program was its conceptual framework based on AAC&U's Greater Expectations Report (2002) in which the essential learning outcomes for a liberal education were identified. Since then AAC&U has recognized Keene State College as a Campus Action Network Partner and an exemplar program in LEAP (Liberal Education and America's Promise).
