Statement of Diversity

Diversity is a community value at the University of New Hampshire.

We are committed to supporting and sustaining an educational community that is inclusive, diverse and equitable. The values of diversity, inclusion and equity are inextricably linked to our mission of teaching and research excellence, and we embrace these values as being critical to development, learning, and success. We expect nothing less than an accessible, multicultural community in which civility and respect are fostered, and discrimination and harassment are not tolerated.

We will ensure that under-represented groups and those who experience systemic inequity will have equal opportunities and feel welcome on our campus. We accept the responsibility of teaching and learning in a diverse democracy where social justice serves as a bridge between a quality liberal education and civic engagement.

Discover TRIO and Upward Bound programs

UNH Upward Bound has successfully helped thousands of New Hampshire students earn a college degree.  This free, federally funded program provides academic enrichment, cultural activities, tutoring, guidance and academic and career advising.  View their Facebook page and find out more about this important program.  

TRIO is Educational Opportunity for Low-Income and Disabled Americans.  TRIO programs help students overcome class, social and cultural barriers to higher education.  Students in the Upward Bound program are four times more likely to earn an undergraduate degree than those students from similar backgrounds who did not participate in TRIO.  Congress established a series of programs to help low-income Americans enter college, graduate and move on to participate more fully in America's economic and social life. These Programs are funded under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965.  Find out more
