New Hampshire Institute of Politics Student Ambassadors

We’re providing [students] with the knowledge that our doors are always open, that their peers are available to them. We’re not going anywhere—just because you have your diploma, that’s not the end of your relationship with us.

— Kaitlyn Clarke, Ph.D., ’09, Associate Professor of Criminal Justice and Director for the Master’s Program in Criminal Justice

A Faculty Advisor in your corner

Strong academic advising can be critical to your success. So, our faculty, the people who know the curriculum best, advise you on which courses to take and when. Every student is assigned a faculty advisor in their declared major. Your advisor will become your best champion, the one who helps you find research opportunities or internships, teaches your favorite course, and writes your recommendations long after you’ve graduated.
