Who We Are
The New Hampshire College & University Council (NHCUC) is a member-centered consortium supporting a statewide network of 21 higher education institutions and thousands of professionals across New Hampshire. Dedicated to the promise of higher education, we work together to enhance the value of education for students, communities, and the state.
NHCUC’s membership comprises diverse and unique institutions from across New Hampshire, including public, private, two-year, and four-year colleges and universities.
These institutions are highly regarded for their outstanding teaching, research, and community service activities. They serve as major centers of activity that are vital to the economic development of their communities and the state.
A Unique Collaboration
Founded in 1966, NHCUC operates as a 501(c)3 nonprofit under the leadership of a Board of Directors comprising member college and university presidents. By working together, our members promote best practices through information sharing and joint programming.
Our collaborative initiatives leverage institutional and government resources to extend the reach and value of education in New Hampshire. They also allow members to expand their capabilities by taking advantage of professional development and tapping into operating efficiencies.
A Boon for Students & the State
NHCUC works to expand access to higher education and improve student success. We also team to attract and retain talented students to study and work in New Hampshire.
In addition to collaborating across member higher education institutions, we partner with secondary schools, employers, and state and national agencies to make college a reality for students from all walks of life.
As the modern workforce continues to demand higher levels of education, these collaborative efforts are more important than ever.
