|University Partnership with the University of New Hampshire Department of Education|
City Year is proud to partner with the University
of New Hampshire, an institution combining the living and learning environment of a New
England liberal arts college with the breadth, spirit of discovery, and civic
commitment of a land-grant research institution, so
our alumni can continue to affect change in their communities.
University of New Hampshire (UNH) is not only a land-grant institution but also a designated sea- and space-grant University, and is among the top-tier research institutions nationally. The University is made up of dozens of academic departments, interdisciplinary institutes, and research centers that attract students and faculty from around the world. As state-of-the-art facilities are built to support academic growth, and new residence and dining halls are built to meet the growing popularity of campus life, the University continues to rest lightly on the Durham landscape. Some 13,000 students and hundreds of faculty and staff live and work amid the rolling hills and riverbeds of one of the most beautiful campuses in the nation.
The UNH Department of Education's mission is to broaden participation in schools in our increasingly complex and diverse society. The faculty members engage with communities to conduct scholarship that increases our understanding of how schools can promote learning and well-being for every student. The school examines the role of language, literacies and culture as integral in the process of teaching and learning. The faculty also prepares education professionals to meet the demands and needs of our communities through reflective practice and innovative technology. Graduates from the program assume roles of responsibility and leadership in PreK-12 schools and classrooms, community agencies, colleges and universities, and in school administrative offices. They are prepared to meet the challenges they will encounter throughout their careers as educators.
