About Engagement



Welcome to UNH Engagement and Outreach. We are New Hampshire's Land, Sea, and Space Grant Research University, and in 2008 we were also classified as a ‘Community Engaged’ university by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.

We hope this web site provides you with a pathway to explore the many ways in which our faculty, extension educators, staff, and students impact your daily life through outreach, discovery and engaged scholarship. Engaged scholarship and outreach enhances the quality of life for citizens across New Hampshire, the New England region, and the world.

At UNH, engaged scholarship is defined as:

“a mutually beneficial collaboration between the University of New Hampshire and community and external partners for the purpose of generating and applying relevant knowledge to directly benefit the public.”
