Public Policy Research & Education

Carsey School of Public Policy

The Carsey School of Public Policy at the University of New Hampshire is nationally recognized for its research, policy education, and civic engagement. The ideas and ambitions of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are a touchstone for our faculty and students as we contribute to a more informed, healthy, equitable, peaceful and sustainable university, community, state, nation and planet. The school takes on pressing public issues with unbiased, accessible, and rigorous research; builds the policy and political problem-solving skills of its students; and brings people together for thoughtful dialogue and practical problem-solving. The school is a hub for work that spans its own faculty and staff, and faculty from across UNH and other institutions. The faculty boasts a national reputation and its work appears in leading journals. The school publishes forty policy-relevant briefs each year, offers three master's degree programs, and engages with experts, leaders, the media, and the public in the United States, New Hampshire, and around the world.


 

On April 27, 2021, the Carsey School of Public Policy and UNH Alumni hosted a panel discussion on the Biden administration's first 100 days. Panelists included Rich Ashooh ’86, Ellen Fitzpatrick, Ryan Gibson, and Ella Nilsen ’13 and the discussion was moderated by Carsey School Director Michael Ettlinger.
