Join us for the 23rd Annual
Kean University Gala

New Jersey Senate President
Nicholas P. Scutari ’89

New Jersey Senate President Nicholas P. Scutari ’89 is this year’s Kean University Gala honoree for his unwavering support of the University and for being an outstanding model of commitment to community service for the Kean community. A Kean alumnus, Scutari is a champion for Kean students and initiatives that advance their success.
Scutari has played an important role in the rise of Kean University and supported the University’s designation as the State’s first – and only – urban research university.
A lifelong resident of Linden, Scutari was elected President of the New Jersey State Senate in 2022 and assembled the most diverse leadership team in the institution’s history. He represents the 22nd District, encompassing parts of Middlesex, Somerset and Union counties. Scutari was first elected to the State Senate in 2003, after beginning his career in public service in 1994 as a member of the Linden Board of Education and being elected to the Union County Freeholder Board, now known as the Union County Board of County Commissioners, in 1996.
With Senate President Scutari on our side, Kean is no longer a hidden gem in New Jersey; it is front and center in the minds of leaders who can impact the University’s future.
