Work at Keene State

Set in the beautiful New England city of Keene, at the foot of Mount Monadnock. Inspired by the college motto “Enter to Learn – Go Forth to Serve,” the institution focuses on rigorous academic programs and a tradition of small classes, faculty-student research and creative projects, and community service. With a fall enrollment of approximately 4200 students, we offer 48 undergraduate majors and selected graduate degrees through three schools: Arts and Humanities, Sciences and Social Sciences, and Professional and Graduate Studies. The College is accredited by NEASC, has 9 nationally accredited programs and is a member of NCAA Division III athletics. U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks Keene State College as one of the best colleges/regional universities in the North.

Our students come from diverse socio-economic and educational backgrounds, with a high percentage of first generation college students. By the time Keene State College students complete their undergraduate experience they develop critical thinking, creative inquiry, intercultural competence, civic engagement, and commitment to well-being that will serve them as active citizens and lifelong learners. We strongly encourage individuals to apply who will support the College’s ongoing efforts to help students become responsible global citizens.

Keene State College is located in the scenic Monadnock region of Southwest New Hampshire, and is an affiliate of the University System of New Hampshire.
