    Connecting Culture and Science to Climate Change in Bhutan and U.S.

    This summer, students from UNH and Royal Thimpu College (RTC) in Bhutan travelled to each other’s communities and collected audio stories from locals who work the land in New England and Bhutan. Students from UNH and RTC collaborated to gather, listen to and edit narratives that represented how the changing climate is impacting the landscape, wildlife, hydrology, farming and food sources in both regions.  UNH and RTC have many parallels: both serve predominantly rural and small town populations in regions that are dependent upon the land for their livelihoods.  Read More

    An UnBelizeable Experience!

    Most undergraduate students have an interest in study abroad yet several factors can prevent them from taking advantage of this opportunity. For many, the cost is prohibitive. A second reason is that they cannot fit ‘something extra’ into their curriculum and still graduate in four years. A third reason may be a lack of information and encouragement.  Read More
