"Building a Better New Hampshire" Roundtable Series

The Building a Better New Hampshire Roundtable Series offers periodic discussions on matters of ethical interest to the business and policy communities. Topics include everything from the costs and benefits of the shared-ownership business model to how society can better reintegrate the formerly incarcerated to whether building the cities of the future requires deregulation of land-use planning. These events offer both locally applicable knowledge from recognized experts and opportunities for attendees to deliberate and give input. They are usually held on the Saint Anselm College campus.

Our schedule of past events is available here.
