Summer 2013: With Distinction
Ask Jay Kahn, interim president 2012-13, about excellence at Keene State College, and he talks about areas of distinction. “It’s important to have a core around which you can define excellence,” he says. “Excellence needs to be purposeful and integrated, and through that you get a sense of cohesion, cohesiveness, and synergy.”
