College of Humanities and Social Sciences

As Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, it is my privilege to connect with alumni and share how we are making an impact by revolutionizing our approach to education and empowering students to become leaders and change-makers.

Thanks to the support and generosity of our donors, Montclair State University continues to deliver innovative and academically rigorous programs and life-changing opportunities. Your gift will support:

-Stipends for unpaid internships so that all students have access to these hangs-on learning experiences

-Support for the Disruption Lab@CHSS which supports innovative classes and programs building student confidence and skills as problem solvers and change makers

-Dean Priorities

To support these impactful initiatives, please make a gift to the CHSS Dean's Fund here (links available in final mock-up). If you have any questions or would like more information on supporting CHSS please contact our Director of Development, Allison Quinn at

Thank you for your generosity!

With my appreciation,

Peter Kingstone, PhD

Dean, College of Humanities and Social Sciences
