Welcome Message from Dean Kingstone:

Welcome back to the start of a new academic year. It’s been such a pleasure to see so many people back on campus … and to see so many faces! Hopefully, it is a sign that we are starting to put the pandemic behind us and to return to the richness of meaningful in-person interaction.

Business is booming at Montclair State – as President Koppell noted in his opening address, we have the largest student population in the history of the university with a record entering class along with rising numbers of transfer students and retention of existing students. In very large measure, that is down to you, the faculty and staff who continue to make Montclair State and our College a special place. We are a College that produces national and world leading research while also providing a high quality education predicated on the care, energy and passion that our faculty and staff devote to our students.

We have a special role in the College. As the country and the world face increasingly difficult challenges, we are the storytellers who make meaning out of data and craft narratives that explore and reveal our shared humanity across our many societal borders.

I wish you all a productive, constructive and enjoyable year.

Peter Kingstone
Dean, CHSS
