Wildcat Community Pledge - Spring 2021


We each have a role to play in our own safety and health, and also in the health and safety of our fellow Wildcats. The University of New Hampshire Wildcat Community Pledge for Spring 2021 sets the behavioral expectations of those coming to any UNH campus (Durham, Manchester, and Concord) for Spring Semester 2021 and for those students living in the greater Durham area.
