 Jan Golinski, professor of history, became an American citizen Friday, Feb. 1, during a naturalization ceremony in Concord. A British citizen who has taught at UNH since 1990, Golinski led the Pledge of Allegiance for the group.

He is shown with U.S. District Court Judge Joseph Laplante, Gov. Maggie Hassan, U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, and UNH School of Law Dean John Broderick. 

“I was delighted to be able to receive my U.S. Citizenship in a ceremony at the new UNH School of Law. It was a great pleasure to meet the dignitaries and the other new citizens from many countries who attended,” Golinski said.
