News editor Robert Keren writes stories about the remarkable lives of Middlebury students, faculty, staff, and alumni. He has reported on the biology major who raises red-tailed hawks, the chemistry professor who converts used vegetable oil into biodiesel, and what goes on at the Snow Bowl during the summer. (Hint: It’s a Mountain of Work.)

Robert arrived at Middlebury in 1997 as the first director of marketing and communications for the Language Schools and Schools Abroad. He was instrumental in the launch of the Portuguese School, the M.A. in Chinese, and the School in Latin America, and he coined the tagline "No English Spoken Here." From 2007 to 2010 he directed internal communications and community relations for Middlebury College.

Born in New York City, Keren was a hot dog vendor at Madison Square Garden and Shea Stadium before graduating with honors from Hamilton College. For the next 11 years he was a staff reporter and photographer for newspapers in Chelsea and Lowell, Massachusetts, and Meredith, New Hampshire, and earned four New England Press Association awards for photojournalism.
