From the Desk of Julie E. Williams
The University of New Hampshire is a vibrant place with outstanding faculty, staff, students, leaders, alums, and supporters who seek to make a positive difference in society. This newsletter is the first of our biannual communication and we welcome you to the Office of Engagement & Faculty Development. We invite you to learn more about who we are, and what we do to support the excellence of our faculty—as we seek to enhance the impact of our engagement with community partners in New Hampshire, the nation and beyond. In this newsletter you will learn about upcoming faculty development opportunities and hear from dynamic new colleagues who joined the office over the last year! In our next edition, you will learn more about our efforts to enhance inclusive excellence as we seek the best talent for the University of New Hampshire. 

As 2019 is now upon us, it gives me great pleasure to wish you a Happy New Year!
