Galloway, NJ – Stockton University President Harvey Kesselman will highlight the growth of the university on his inaugural tour, “A Distinctive Vision: Embracing Stockton’s Future” throughout New Jersey this summer. As the fifth president of Stockton, Kesselman, a 1979 alumnus, is proud to share with the community the transformation of his own alma mater.

Kesselman will unveil his strategic vision for Stockton’s future, which focuses on “students first,” advancing the university’s mission of excellence in teaching, support for scholarship and dedication to service.

The tour also highlights strategic priorities for Stockton, including developing the academic, administrative and financial resources to become the premier educational institute in the region; continuing the university’s strategic planning process; and improving and strengthening the university’s internal operational efficiencies.
