Thanks to the generosity of a UNH Business School alumnus who wants to foster better critical thinking, writing, analytical, and communication skills among college graduates, a new endowed fund now exists to benefit the students in the Humanities Program. The Koch Family Scholarship in the Humanities provides meritorious scholarship support to undergraduate students majoring in Humanities at the University of New Hampshire-Durham. The fund will continue to exist in perpetuity, to sustain and nurture the work of generations of undergraduates in the Humanities Program. The Humanities Program and the College is profoundly grateful for this new opportunity to offer more robust financial support to our students.

The 2014 January Term schedule went online earlier today. Among the dozens of courses that the College is offering is a new experiential learning opportunity, POLT 584: Occupy Democracy: Participatory/Sustainable Democracy in Theory and Practice. In this course, students will explore the key concepts of participatory democracy and practice how to both test and live out those ideas. How will they do it?  Online coursework will build the academic framework and a retreat at Camp Merrowvista, an eco-educational, experiential learning center, will provide the hands-on training. Located in Tuftoboro, NH, Camp Merrowvista is set on over 600 acres in the pristine Ossipee Mountains. A special team of camp leaders will facilitate the activities during the retreat, bringing ideas into action. The course is taught by Marla Brettschneider, professor of political science and women’s studies, who seeks to provide an unique “classroom” experience that is both challenging and exciting.
