In 1985, the first four UNH students graduated from the Program in International Perspectives, now known as the International Affairs Dual Major. For professor Frank McCann, the creative force behind the program, it was a dream come true.

McCann, together with dedicated colleagues from across the schools and colleges, engaged in years of curriculum development, fundraising and academic committee reviews to craft a landmark program that enables UNH undergraduate students from any major to expand their interests, research and career options into the international arena, and to integrate study or internships abroad into their major.. Those early visionaries included professors John Carroll, natural resources; Bernard Gordon, political science; Marc Herold, economics; and Doug Wheeler, history.

The OISS Global Fund-Support for International Students and Send Wildcats Abroad Fund funds were established in honor of those faculty members whose imagination, foresight and hard work continue to make international study at UNH a vital and life-changing experience for students of every major.
