UNH a finalist for national community engagement award

Monday, July 31, 2017

UNH has been selected as one of four finalists for the 2017 C. Peter Magrath Community Engagement Scholarship Award, presented by the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU) annually to recognize extraordinary community outreach initiatives.

The APLU is recognizing UNH for its Prevention Innovations Research Center, "which develops pioneering responses to sexual and relationship violence through research that engages a variety of community partners.”

“This year’s Magrath Awards have demonstrated exceptional cultural, civic and economic contributions to their communities, states and regions,” says APLU President Peter McPherson. “They’re tackling some of the most urgent challenges facing our country by elevating the importance of student and faculty service, deepening connections to their communities and reorienting their engagement work to ensure it employs a comprehensive approach that addresses every angle of these challenges.”

The winner will be announced during the APLU’s annual meeting in November.
