Keep UNH strong

UNH President Mark Huddleston testified before the Senate Finance Committee about the proposed 45 percent cut in state funding for UNH.

President Mark Huddleston May is Commencement month at the University of New Hampshire. It's a time for some 2,500 graduates to celebrate the fruits of their hard work and for the entire University community to come together to recognize—formally and with "pomp and circumstance"—why we're here in the first place.

On May 21, we'll celebrate public higher education at its finest as future teachers, nurses, engineers, business people, scientists, and many other professionals prepare for a new chapter in their lives. On the cusp of entering the "real world," many graduating students will already have real world experience from holding down jobs to help pay college expenses, as well as undertaking internships and other valuable experiences that blend academics with the real world.

Each time I look out at the expanse of students, families, faculty, and community members packed into Memorial Field, I feel proud of what they and this University accomplish, year after year.

Mark W. Huddleston
University of New Hampshire
