Welcome to Kean Quest, Kean University’s Multidisciplinary Student Journal

Kean University is committed to the holistic growth of all its community members - students and faculty. The University encourages students to think critically and creatively and to serve as active and contributing members of their scholarly, professional, and personal communities.

Kean students are supported by a University devoted to "research, scholarship, creative work, and innovative uses of technology." One major extension of this commitment is Kean Quest - an open-access multidisciplinary student journal. Founded in 2018, this journal publishes intellectual research and creative works by students and recent graduates of Kean University. Kean Quest provides a digital platform through which research conducted by Kean undergraduate and graduate students may be shared, thereby contributing to the scholarly conversation not only at Kean University but worldwide. Kean Quest is produced through the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs & Provost.
