Franklin Pierce Law Center Merger Forum May 15

May 6, 2009

The UNH-Franklin Pierce Law Center (FPLC) merger exploration working group invites members of the community to an open forum Friday, May 15 from 9:30 to 11 a.m. in the MUB Theatre II.  All members of the community are welcome and encouraged to attend.

President Mark Huddleston appointed this exploration working group to identify and analyze the issues salient to a possible merger between UNH and FPLC.  A draft of the working group’s report can be accessed at http://www.unh.edu/president/markhuddleston/speeches/fplc0509.htm.

The working group aims to articulate foreseeable costs and benefits of a potential merger and seeks comments on its draft report before sending its final version to President Huddleston. Members of the working group will begin the open forum with a brief presentation before fielding questions and comments.
