UNH Today


The University of New Hampshire is one of the top producers of Gilman Scholars in the country. As the U.S. State Department celebrated the 20th anniversary of the program this fall, they recognized the universities with the greatest number of scholarship recipients over the past two decades. UNH made the top 10 list for medium-sized institutions alongside peers like Columbia University and Boston College.

Every year, a chosen few of UNH’s outstanding faculty members from each college and school receive Faculty Excellence Awards in recognition of their achievements in teaching, scholarship and service. Universitywide awards recognize public service, research, teaching and engagement. UNH celebrates the 2021 recipients.

Politics for Social Workers

The social work profession calls on its members to strive for social justice. It asks aspiring and practicing social workers to advocate for political change and take part in political action on behalf of marginalized people and groups. Yet this macro goal is often left on the back burner as the day-to-day struggles of working directly with clients take precedence. And while most social workers have firsthand knowledge of how public policy neglects or outright harms society’s most vulnerable, too few have training in the political processes that created these policies.
