Membership in the New Hampshire College & University Council offers a host of collaborative benefits. We implement student programs, organize professional development, and coordinate joint marketing and operations. As a statewide organization, NHCUC is a powerful voice in advocating for the value of higher education in New Hampshire.
Unique Institutions with Common Goals
NHCUC’s members have unique cultures, offerings, and academic missions. Yet as New Hampshire–based institutions with a shared commitment to excellence in education, they have a great deal in common.
Our work shows that higher education institutions can gain broad mutual benefits from collaborating. From joint programming to information sharing to operating efficiencies, the benefits of collaborating are enormous.
NHCUC membership confers outstanding cooperative benefits.
