The Sustainability Institute as a Resource

Sustainability, the collective commitment to human dignity for all people and ecological integrity in all places, is fundamental to the public good and is a core UNH value. 

We actively partner with businesses, non-profits, and municipalities to offer opportunities, information, and resources for professional and personal use. We recognize the need for a cohesive network to build a sustainable world and know we can achieve more effective, rapid gains by working collaboratively, together - across disciplines, sectors, and generations.

Resources for Your Sustainability Efforts

The Changemaker Collaborative at the Sustainability Institute (our partnership with Paul College of Business and Carsey School of Public Policy) provides opportunities to add capacity and resources to advance your sustainability efforts, while nurturing UNH students to become future leaders. It's a win-win:

  • Businesses, non-profits, and municipalities receive qualified, motivated, and UNH faculty-supported students for capacity building in their organizations and their investment in creating a future employee talent pipeline.
  • Students gain hands-on experience, hone their professional skills, and build networks through experiences aligned with their values and interests in creating a just and sustainable world.
