Institutions

Education is the key to New Hampshire’s long-term welfare, economic prosperity, and quality of life.  More than ever, the potential for each person to succeed—and to prosper—is determined by his or her ability to think, to reason, and to participate fully in all facets of life in a democratic society. Providing these critical educational programs and services through teaching, research, and public service is at the heart of the University System of New Hampshire’s mission. The four USNH institutions are the state’s primary supplier of highly educated citizens and workers. 

The four institutions of the University System—the University of New Hampshire, Plymouth State University, Keene State College, and Granite State College—annually enroll more than 35,000 students and graduate 6,500 students at the associate, bachelor, master, and doctoral levels. 

The institutions annually award more than half of the state’s bachelor’s degrees. In addition, over 83,000 alumni of University System institutions currently live in New Hampshire.
