UNION — Kean University received a passing grade from an inspection team sent to evaluate whether the troubled institution made the improvements needed to hold on to its accreditation, the school’s president said yesterday.
The team from the Middle States Commission on Higher Education spent three days touring the Union Township university, which was placed on probation earlier this summer for failing to meet four of the accreditation agency’s 14 standards.

The inspectors presented their preliminary findings to the campus in a closed-door meeting yesterday. Though the accreditation team listed several additional improvements Kean should institute, their assessment was largely positive, said Dawood Farahi, Kean’s embattled president.
