Stockton Provost Kesselman Named to State Task Force on College and Career Readiness

Galloway Township, NJ – Dr. Harvey Kesselman, Provost and Executive Vice President of The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, has been appointed to the recently formed NJ Department of Education Task Force on College and Career Readiness.

The working group, which meets in Trenton, is charged with ensuring that New Jersey high school graduates master the specific skills and acquire the appropriate knowledge to enter college and the workforce.

“As higher education adjusts to meet the changing needs of an increasingly global economy, it is critical that our schools graduate students ready to compete in college and the working world,” said Dr. Kesselman, a resident of Mays Landing. “While I am honored to have been asked to serve on the Task Force on College and Career Readiness, our group faces an important challenge.”

The Task Force has been charged to define what college and career readiness means, and to develop ways to assess the appropriate level of student achievement to attain that definition. The group will be evaluating current standards and exams and recommend needed changes to the system.
