Advocacy and Action Awards

The Advocacy and Action Awards recognize the good and important work being done by members of the UNH community. We strive to bring awareness to the efforts of award recipients that help foster inclusion and equity, to reinforce how “differences” in any setting adds value, and to support community involvement in projects and actions that facilitate the ability for UNH students and employees to thrive.
