Women's Commission Launches Survey on Child Care
Dear Members of the University Community:
Child care is an issue of significant public interest, and the President's
Commission on the Status of Women is aware of its impact on working families
at the University of New Hampshire. In an effort to learn more about these
families and their child care providers, the commission has developed a
survey to collect data on child care concerns, needs, and experiences.
Nationally, families face issues related to the availability, quality, and
cost of child care; this survey attempts to capture similar data.
As president, I applaud the commission for undertaking this study and request
your participation in the survey process. Your input is important to identifying
critical issues faced by many UNH families utilizing child care services.
Thank you in advance for taking time out of your busy schedule to complete the
attached survey. The data collected will yield valuable information on child
care services for working families.

Mallory Reappointed Provost
As many of you know, Provost Bruce Mallory underwent a comprehensive
review of his performance during fall semester. This review included
feedback to me from faculty, deans, staff, trustees, and colleagues,
as well as a detailed assessment of our vision for the future of
the University of New Hampshire. Following the conclusion of that
review, I am pleased to announce that Provost Mallory has accepted
my offer of reappointment as Provost and Executive Vice President
of the University of New Hampshire.
I want to thank all of you who took the time to respond to my request
for feedback and to the Agenda Committee of the Faculty Senate for
conducting an extensive survey and providing thoughtful analysis
of the data gathered as a result of that survey. In addition to
helpful feedback directly to me regarding Provost Mallory's performance,
suggestions for ways in which the leadership and structure of administration
at UNH might be improved were received. You will see some changes
in the months to come as a result of that feedback.
Again, thank you all for participating in this important review.
Please join me in welcoming Provost Mallory to an ongoing appointment
as Provost and Executive Vice President.
