President Mark HuddlestonUNH is rightly renowned for its outstanding teaching, cutting-edge research, winning athletic programs, unlimited opportunities for personal, academic, and professional growth, and a great quality of life in one of the most beautiful parts of America.

As the UNH community fights for a state budget that will allow it to maintain the high level of service that defines it as the state's flagship public university, we will continue to keep our stakeholders informed—of our accomplishments, challenges, and opportunities to get involved.

I urge you to visit the website, and if you’re in Durham, to visit my office.
