About

At the UNH College of Life Sciences and Agriculture we are a leader in cutting edge research, hands on learning, innovation, sustainability, and community outreach and engagement. We are proud of our COLSA community: each fall we rally together to donate thousands of meals to the NH food bank, we come together on complex and interdisciplinary research, and we engage both undergraduate and graduate students in networking and career building events.  

Our community spirit is reflected in our fundraising priorities: our goal is to raise funds for the COLSA Dean's Strategic Initiatives, which allows us to quickly deploy funds across the college to solve problems, fund equipment repair, strengthen our community, and more. 

Make your gift to the COLSA Dean's Strategic Initiatives fund, there's still time left to support COLSA!
