Charter and Goals

The UNH Transportation Policy Committee serves in an advisory capacity to the president and is responsible for making recommendations on the full range of issues that relate to transportation management, including parking policy and regulations. Recommendations will be formulated taking into account the teaching, research and public service missions of the university and its long-range master plan; the transportation needs of faculty, staff, students and campus visitors; mutual interests of the university and the town of Durham with respect to transportation including regional transportation goals; and funding sources and levels that are realistic and feasible within UNH budgetary policies and constraints.

Committee membership includes appointed representation of core constituent groups including the student undergraduate and graduate leadership, Faculty Senate, the Operating Staff Council, the Professional and Technical Staff Council as well as ex-officio participation from the town of Durham, UNH Campus Planning, Transportation Services, Police, Grounds & Events, the Sustainability Institute, and UNH Manchester.

The overarching goal of the committee is to guide the university toward a systemic transportation management plan emphasizing health and safety, efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and fairness for all university constituents, consistent with priorities set by the strategic academic plan and the master plan, and that focuses on both the supply and demand characteristics of transportation.
