KEEN Leadership Council

The KEEN Leadership Council empowers KEEN partner institutions to shape and guide Network initiatives and activities.

The Council will:

  • Provide guidance on how KEEN partner institutions can engage and lead in the Network.
  • Assist with activities such as connecting new KEEN Leaders within the growing Network.
  • Provide input on promoting the entrepreneurial mindset.

The Council is inclusive and reflective of the Network’s wonderful and diverse range of KEEN partner institutions, in terms of size, focus, mission, geographic location, and more.

All official partner candidates were sent to the primary contacts at all KEEN Partner schools for review and voting.
