Mindful Organizations

During this week of giving thanks, I must acknowledge my gratitude for working in an organization that I would deem as highly functioning.  I joined UNH’s Office for Research Partnerships and Commercialization (ORPC) during a time when the office was in flux and in the process of hiring a new director.  Since then, the group has blossomed like an apple tree, now with many branches bearing ripe and exquisite fruit.
