News editor Robert Keren writes stories about the remarkable lives of Middlebury students, faculty, staff, and alumni. He has reported on the biology student who raises red-tailed hawks, the chemistry professor who turns vegetable oil into biodiesel, and what goes on at the Snow Bowl during the summer. (Hint: It’s a Mountain of Work.) He also covers lectures, panels, and campus news for print and Web.

Robert arrived at Middlebury in 1997 as the first director of marketing and communications for the Language Schools and Schools Abroad. He helped launch 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, Robert worked as a hot dog vendor at Madison Square Garden and Shea Stadium, and graduated with honors from Hamilton College. For the next 11 years he was a reporter and photographer for newspapers in Chelsea and Lowell, Massachusetts, and Meredith, New Hampshire, and earned four New England Press Association awards for his photojournalism.
