Our Community

The office sponsors and promotes initiatives, as well as, provides resources for addressing issues of equity and diversity in institutional structure, recruitment and retention, curriculum, community climate, and outreach and engagement.  The office holds the responsibility for developing and sustaining programs, policies and initiatives that serve to create a welcoming environment for students, staff, faculty, and administrators of diverse backgrounds, cultures, and experiences.

Important Resources

Racial Justice Resources

The creation of this guide is an ongoing collective effort from all across the UNH community. These resources are a starting point for educating yourself about systemic racism and the Black experience in America, and for taking steps to address and fight injustice. We acknowledge and appreciate the work of many others, especially those in the Black community, for the time and energy it took to create and collect these resources.

We encourage you to reach out to professionals on campus who can connect you to the resources you need.
