Several UNH students are preparing for summer study abroad as part
of UNH Cambridge Summer Program. Two UNH professors coordinating
the program, Margaret-Love Denman, associate professor of English,
and Andrew Merton, professor of English, are in Cambridge in preparation
for classes to begin Monday, July 11. The program has enrolled 56
students, including 33 UNH students.
According to university officials, the professors have assessed
the safety issues at Gonville and Caius College at Cambridge University
where the students will be residing and have determined that the
program will proceed as planned. The university’s London Program
at Regent’s College is on the academic year cycle and is not
in session. UNH is in the process of contacting the participants
of the Cambridge and London programs to ensure they have the most
up-to-date information about the status of the programs.
In addition, the Center for International Education has confirmed
that two UNH students studying in London this summer on UNH-approved
programs are safe.
Inquiries regarding the status of UNH students studying in the United
Kingdom should be directed to Ted Kirkpatrick, associate
dean of the College of Liberal Arts and director of Justiceworks,
