Over two dozen UNH students are spending their summers undertaking socially- and environmentally-conscious internships through the UNH Social Innovation Internship program. Half of them are students from the College of Liberal Arts (COLA) who are bringing their energy for social innovation to the nonprofit and for-profit business worlds.
UNH senior Gabrielle Greaves received the Vanessa Johnson Award on Monday during the 36th annual Martin Luther King Day Community Celebration in Manchester, New Hampshire. The award recognizes emerging leaders in social justice.
Mary Malone says one thing she loves about UNH is that the students are so active politically. “They have really strong opinions about what’s going on in the world, and they’re really interested in actually learning more to inform their opinions,” says the associate professor of political science.
Jacqueline Jones Royster, Dean of the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts at the Georgia Institute of Technology, will deliver the 2017 John T. Holden Lecture titled “An Ecosystem for 21st Century Global Leadership" on Sept 28, 2017, at 12:40 p.m. in Hamilton Smith Hall in Durham. The talk is free and open to the public.
