College Letter 09/2016
The College’s new dean, Heidi Bostic, discusses the critical role the liberal arts play at UNH and beyond.
Dean Heidi Bostic assumed leadership of the College of Liberal Arts this summer, on June 27. After just a few months on the job, Bostic — energetic and optimistic — has taken the pulse of the College and is developing exciting initiatives in consultation with faculty. Most are too early for prime time discussion, but the guiding philosophy behind them is clear: the liberal arts are central to all learning at the University of New Hampshire and crucial for addressing the grand challenges of our times.
Writing educators from UNH and New Hampshire high schools collaborate on preparing students for college.
For many students, the transition from high school to college can be challenging. What they might not realize, though, is that the transition is also challenging for their educators, especially when it comes to teaching writing.
Internships help students gain confidence and connections.
“I am standing in a crowded elevator, steps away from reporting for my first day as a summer intern ... I try not to let the first jitters get the best of me as I remind myself to breathe and be confident. ‘Fake it until you make it,’ I repeat to myself.” So began Stephanie Morales’ internship this summer.
