President Huddleston to Testify in Congress on Tax Reform

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

UNH President Mark Huddleston will testify before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Ways and Means Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013, at a hearing on tax reform and charitable contributions. His complete testimony, which will focus on the importance of charitable giving to higher education, will run in next week’s issue of Campus Journal. 

“At UNH, more than two-thirds of the donors who have created endowments have done so to support financial aid and scholarships. Ten percent of the funds we raise in any given year underwrite research and teaching initiatives,” Huddleston says. 

In addition to representing UNH, Huddleston is testifying on behalf of a number of higher education associations including the American Council on Education, American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, American Association of Community Colleges, American Association of State Colleges and Universities, American Indian Higher Education Consortium, Association of American Universities, Association of Community College Trustees, Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities, Association of Public and Land-grant Universities, National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, and the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators. Together, these associations represent approximately 4,300 two- and four-year public and private colleges and universities.
