Staff and faculty at the University of New Hampshire are bracing for layoffs after a letter this week from UNH President Jim Dean about plans to cut costs.

The decision comes in light of a report earlier this month from a consulting firm aimed at helping the university improve its finances. After comparing UNH’s finances to peer institutions, the Huron Consulting Group told the school it could save $10 million to $20 million annually with cuts to facilities, administrative research, and tech and library departments.

According to the agreement, Huddleston will present at various leadership conferences and institutes, and provide “consulting services” for future curriculum in that department this year. He will also be working with state public officials through UNH Extension.

Every summer morning, Midge Eliassen has the same routine. She walks out her back door, down the steps, and onto her dock on Lake Sunapee.

There, she pulls out a plankton net and takes a sample from the water, shipping off the results to be analyzed in a lab at Dartmouth College.

She’s been doing this, rain or shine, for 12 years. “I get a chance to look at the world and see what the lake looks like each day, which I really love,” she said.
