Research Administration Advisory Council

The mission of the Research Administration Advisory Council (RAC) is to actively foster a USNH community culture that supports all forms of scholarship. The RAC will also serve as an advisory and consultative body to provide guidance, input, and advice to the Office of Research, Economic Engagement and Outreach (REEO) on a variety of topics including strategic planning, new initiatives, mentoring students involved with research, and policies and procedures pertaining to research. 

The goals of the UNH Research Administration Advisory Council are to:

  • Increase communication regarding research and scholarly activities across all the USNH campuses. 
  • Nurture a community culture of scholarship to promote collaboration and support.
  • Serve as a centralized council anyone can come to with general research-related questions or concerns. 
  • Ensure that research policies and procedures support and encourage diversity and inclusion. 

Procedures:  The Council meets every other month during the academic year.
