University of New Hampshire Ranked Among Top Research Universities
The University of New Hampshire (UNH), an NEC member, has been ranked by the Carnegie Classifications of Institutions of Higher Education as one of the top research universities in the country. This new rating places UNH among the 130 doctoral-granting universities with a ‘very high research activity’ label.
UNH is one of only three New England public universities to be awarded this ranking. With research programs in a range of fields, from space physics to vulnerable populations, the school attracts more than $110 million in research funding each year. UNH officials believe that this new ranking will attract talented students, researchers, faculty, and staff, as well as signal to government agencies, philanthropists, and businesses that the school can be expected to conduct high-quality research and education.
Jan Nisbet, UNH senior vice provost for research, commented, “This is a powerful recognition of UNH as one of the nation’s highest-performing research universities. It underscores our ongoing commitment to research and scholarship that improves the lives of people here in the Granite State and across the globe.”
The New England Council congratulates UNH on this noteworthy achievement, and for establishing a high standard of performance for New England public universities.
