About

The College of Liberal Arts shines brighter with your generosity. Every dollar raised for COLA during The (603) Challenge will continue to support student and faculty successes; from providing support for students completing internship opportunities nationwide, stipends for fieldwork, faculty support for new programming and continued research, and expanded lecture opportunities like the New Hampshire International Seminar (NHIS) series. 

Whether you choose to support COLA's General Fund, one of our 21 departments, or the countless programs and funds that make up UNH's largest college unit, every donor and every dollar counts in creating a stronger COLA for generations of Wildcats.

As a bonus- your gift made during the (603) Challenge will help us unlock $107,000 in underwriter support that will directly benefit COLA programs and initiatives!
