Update No. 11 from President Dean

Dear Colleagues,

Summer is such a wonderful season to unwind, spend time with family and friends and explore new places. I’ve been doing a bit of each, visiting family in North Carolina, enjoying a trip to the Lakes Region and traveling to China to meet with alumni and prospective students.

This month, I’m trying something new for my update to the community: a podcast interview with The UNH Podcats, looking back on my first year at UNH and ahead to the new academic year. Of course, I also review the books on my summer reading list.

The UNH Podcats is available on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher and Spotify by searching “The UNH Podcats.” Give it a follow to stay up to date on all things UNH. Season 3 will begin this fall.

I hope you will tune in on your favorite music platform or by clicking HERE and let me know what you think.

Finally, I have enjoyed revisiting some classic summer treats recommended by so many of you when Jan and I first arrived last year. Ice cream is at the top of that list, and while I can’t promise we will be serving frappes, Jan and I hope you will join us for an ice cream social on Friday, August 2, from 1-2 p.m. in Murkland Courtyard. You just might have a chance to meet a couple special guests!

Best regards,

James W. Dean Jr.
