The Future of UNH: Building Financial Strength

To help UNH be a national leader in financial strength, one of its four strategic priorities, the university partnered with the Huron Consulting Group to conduct an in-depth financial analysis across all academic and administrative areas. Huron's work began in September 2019 and a final report was released in January 2020. This work is helping UNH to better align its budget and resources with its strategic priorities, which will help make the university more affordable for students and deliver greater value to those it serves.
