Thomas Kean to Receive 2005 NAICU Award for Advocacy of Independent Higher Education

Thomas Kean to Receive 2005 NAICU Award for Advocacy of Independent...

January 28, 2005

WASHINGTON, D.C., Jan. 28—Thomas H. Kean, president of Drew University and former governor of New Jersey, has been selected by the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU) to receive its 2005 Award for Advocacy of Independent Higher Education. The award will be presented at 2:30 p.m. on Monday, January 31, at the NAICU annual meeting. The meeting will be held at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill.

The NAICU Advocacy Award was established in 1993 to recognize individuals who have championed the cause of independent nonprofit higher education. Whether in government, business, or philanthropy, the recipient of this award has provided leadership, established resources, or enacted policy at the national or state level to significantly assist private colleges and universities in serving their students and communities.

Kean is the first person to have received both the Advocacy Award and NAICU’s other major recognition, the Paley Award. He was selected as the Paley Award recipient in 1989, in recognition of his achievements as New Jersey’s governor.

"The influence of Tom Kean on higher education, the nation, and the world has been multi-faceted and far-reaching," said NAICU President David L. Warren. "As president of Drew University since 1990, he has—with a deft personal touch, astute political skills, and visionary leadership—shaped the university into one of the nation’s leading small liberal arts universities by stressing the primacy of teaching, the creative use of technology in the liberal arts, and the importance of international education."

Kean’s commitment to issues beyond campus and around the world is reflected in his activities while serving as president of Drew. Most notably, he served as chairman of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (the "9/11 Commission"). He also headed the American delegation to the U.N. Conference on Youth in Thailand, and served as vice chairman of the American delegation to the World Conference on Women in Beijing. Within the U.S., he served as a member of the President’s Initiative on Race, and on the National Endowment for Democracy.

Kean served two terms as governor of New Jersey from 1982 to 1990, winning his second term by the largest margin in state history. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Princeton University and a master’s degree from Columbia University Teachers College.

He and his wife, the former Deborah Bye, have twin sons, Tom and Reed, and a daughter, Alexandra. The Keans live in Bedminster, N.J.

Robert N. Kelly Selected to Receive 2005 Paley Award for Service to Private Higher Education

Robert N. Kelly Selected to Receive 2005 Paley Award for Service to...

January 28, 2005

WASHINGTON, D.C., Jan. 28—Robert N. Kelly, executive director of the Kansas Independent College Association (KICA) from 1976 to 2004, has been selected by the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU) to receive the 2005 Henry Paley Memorial Award. He will receive the award from NAICU President David L. Warren on Tuesday, Feb. 2, at the NAICU annual meeting. The meeting will be held at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill.

Since 1985, the Paley Award has recognized an individual who, throughout his or her career, has unfailingly served the students and faculty of independent higher education. The recipient of this award has set an example for all who would seek to advance educational opportunity in the United States. The Paley Award is named for Henry Paley, president of the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities of New York from 1975 until 1984.

“Few higher education advocates, inside or outside of the Washington Beltway, have had a more continued and profound influence on federal higher education law than Bob Kelly,” said NAICU President David L. Warren. “For 28 years, he has mastered formulas, built friendships on Capitol Hill, and negotiated regulations that have benefited private college students throughout the nation.”

In addition to heading KICA, Kelly served as the executive director of the Kansas Independent College Fund from 1995 to 2000. Kelly’s achievements during his tenure with the independent colleges and universities in Kansas are numerous.

Kelly was intimately involved in drafting the current campus-based aid formula that considers a student's unmet need, a factor that makes college choice possible for millions of low-income students. He pioneered a tax-exempt bond financing program in Kansas that has brought the students of his state less expensive, more efficient loans, and served as a model for other states.

Kelly has given his time to promote many national private higher education causes. He has been a steady presence on Capitol Hill in endless legislative battles, and was particularly effective in working with his delegation, when Bob Dole was Senate Republican leader and Nancy Kassebaum was the key Republican on the Senate education committee. He served countless hours as a NAICU negotiator in the tedious, but critically important, negotiated rulemaking process—through which detailed regulations are written with the input of the higher education community. Kelly was also a U.S. Senate appointee to the national Advisory Committee on Student Financial Assistance.

Kelly received his bachelor's degree from Occidental College, and his master's degree and doctorate from the University of Kansas. He has worked for the Kansas state legislature, served as an assistant professor at Washburn University, and worked for the Kansas State Education Commission and Kansas Board of Regents.

Kelly will be joined at the award presentation by his wife, Cindy.
