CCSNH is a public system of higher education consisting of seven independent colleges, plus local academic centers. An academic center is a location where classes are offered, but certain student services are provided at the primary college location. The System is led by a Board of Trustees, a Chancellor, and the College Presidents. CCSNH is organized pursuant to NH RSA 188-F. The Chancellor's Office is located in Concord on the campus of NHTI, Concord's Community College.
