a learning environment

Welcome to UNH Engagement and Faculty Development. We are New Hampshire's land, sea, and space grant research University.  We hope this web site provides you with a pathway to explore the many ways in which our faculty, extension educators, staff, and students impact your daily lives through outreach, discovery, and engaged scholarship. Engagement and Faculty Development enhances the quality of life for citizens across New Hampshire, the New England region, and the world.

At UNH, engagement is defined as:

“a mutually beneficial collaboration between the University of New Hampshire and community and external partners for the purpose of generating and applying relevant knowledge to directly benefit the public.”
