College Letter 05/2016
Five soon-to-be graduates share the academic passions they've found at UNH.
They have more than one mentor, more than one possible career path, a slew of skill sets and a bunch of friends. They accept that problems are complex, that circumstances may change, and throughout, they retain a clear sense of purpose.
A UNH-produced film helps write Black experience back into New Hampshire history.
The year was 1835. The place: Canaan, N.H. Hundreds of men with teams of oxen and chains descended on Noyes Academy, a newly-established interracial school. They pulled the building off its foundation, dragging it a mile to the town hall where they left it in a heap.
Joe Lugalla is among this year's faculty retirees, but resting isn't in his plan.
You'd think that Joe Lugalla might want to just relax. He has worked for more than 40 years as an educator and researcher, the last 22 of which were spent as an anthropology professor at UNH. He's retiring this year, but he has already hit the ground running on a new career path.
