Kelly is one of 11 women out of a class of 134 to graduate from the New Jersey state police academy this year. She is a CSE legacy student and also comes from a family of law enforcement professionals.

"The diversity of the school taught me to appreciate differences, which I use on the job," she explains. "I lived, studied, and worked with so many people from different backgrounds that my perspective allows me to work well those I meet on the job."

What Students Are Saying

Eboni Phillips, '16
"Wanting to get to the next management level, I reviewed my resume. A friend kept pushing me to finish my degree, but with a very full plate I felt I couldn't take it on. My friend had Dr. Ford call me to explain the BA/MA program at CSE. He also sent me the printed information. It took a few months before I decided I was ready."
