This week, we are hosting our first faculty design institute to develop UNH's forthcoming Dual Major in Sustainability.
Join us virtually by following #UNHSDM on Twitter and visiting the dual major's website at unhsdm.weebly.com.
Digital learning is going to be a big part of this new dual major. So, as part of the process to design the dual major, we're "greeting the tweet" (the digital equiv of "walking the talk?"). No? How about "probbing the blog?"
