The University System of New Hampshire strives to be the partner of choice with our communities, businesses, and organizations and have launched many new initiatives to further partnership efforts. This includes establishing business liaisons at each institution, creating a centralized call center for questions about online learning/training opportunities, and looking at ways we can work together to encourage more of our college graduates to stay, work, and live in New Hampshire.
