Student Accessibility Services

Student Accessibility Services provides services to students with documented disabilities to ensure that all University activities and programs are accessible. The office also promotes the development of student self-reliance and the personal independence necessary to succeed in a university climate. We seek to create a comprehensively accessible environment where students are viewed on a basis of ability, not disability.

SEML fosters positive youth development through integrating both social-emotional learning and mindfulness education. This includes both increased awareness and skill development that can greatly assist young people in responding to stress and trauma, developing resiliency and finding success in personal and social actions.

Resilience - The Movie

UNH Extension has copy of Resilience for loan. The award winning documentary can be used to educate individuals or communities about the affects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES). The film reveals how toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune. Resilience, however, also chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back.

Food Preservation

Food preservation resources include freezing and canning of fruits and vegetables, using equipment like pressure canners and multi-cookers, safety of using old pickling recipes, and answers to common questions. UNH Extension also provides free testing of pressure canner dial gauges as a service to home preservers in New Hampshire.
