New Hampshire

For a small state, in terms of both population and size, New Hampshire boasts a variety of esteemed higher education institutions, from Ivy League and research universities to law and art schools. The Higher Education Commission oversees the state’s postsecondary education. One of its recent initiatives was adopting the Common Core State Standards, which define the knowledge and skills students should master to succeed in college. Another state mission focuses on making higher education more affordable by expanding the state’s Running Start program. This effort enables high school students to earn college credits from their local high school, which can help them save on future tuition.

A majority of New Hampshire’s colleges and universities also belong to the New Hampshire College University Council, a consortium of 17 public and institutions of higher education noted for their outstanding teaching, research, and community service practices. The council works to increase opportunities for underrepresented students to access higher education, as well as increase retention rates, improve academic success, and ease transitions from secondary to post-secondary schooling.
