Anonymous Donor to Match Gifts Up to $250
During this holiday season, UNH wants to express its gratitude to those who have forever changed the lives of our students and community, and to recognize and celebrate the act of giving. In honor of the season of giving, an anonymous donor has stepped forward with a challenge to match gifts up to $250 until the end of the tax year on December 31. Alumni and friends can direct their support to the area of their choice, and the match will be directed toward scholarship support. Gifts can be made online at www.newhaven.edu/givenow; by calling Scott Davis, director of the annual fund, at 203-479-4504; or by mail to the Office of Advancement, 300 Boston Post Road, West Haven, CT 06516. Gifts must be postmarked by December 31 to count for 2012 taxes and to qualify for the match.
Executive MBA Program Described as
Cutting-Edge and Convenient
When Brian Bethel, a manager at Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation, leaves Connecticut on a business trip, he brings everything he needs with him for his studies in the University's Executive MBA program.

Bethel is more technophobic than his peers, he says, yet has learned to use the electronic Blackboard system, a teaching tool that allows the instructor to post material from class, make assignments, do assessments and interact with students all online.
