Civic Engagement Series includes civics courses and forums with candidates and thought leaders

NH’s Community Colleges are promoting civic participation through a three-pronged series that includes new courses on the presidential primary, presidential candidate forums at community college campuses, and “Granite State Conversations” with thought leaders on issues important to America’s future. 

Berlin – Matt Wood, who has been serving as interim president of White Mountains Community College (WMCC) since July 2014, was formally appointed the college’s president by the board of trustees at its meeting today. 

“After a very successful year in the position as interim president, and following an evaluation that included input from a broad spectrum of the college community and stakeholders, I am very pleased to recommend the formal appointment of Matt Wood to the position of WMCC president,” said Ross Gittell, chancellor of the community college system of NH. 

Berlin, NH - NH’s community college system trustees today formalized a tuition freeze for the current academic year.  The colleges had promised a freeze based on the level of state funding in the budget, but could not formally adopt the rate until the state budget was enacted.  CCSNH had frozen tuition costs provisionally for the current semester.  The board voted on the freeze at its meeting held today at White Mountains Community College in Berlin.
