Tomorrow UNH will be holding a Campus Master Plan Forum in which certain university changes due to limited state support will be discussed. On the agenda: a relocation of the equine program, university land use, a new center for the arts, and new graduate/family housing.
Students are up in arms, however, especially over the equine program's change in location. Physical and online petitions have been going around protesting the potential change. One of the arguments against moving the program is that students specifically come to UNH because the barns are so accessible and close to the university. If they were moved, equestrians would not necessarily be able to keep their horses there and volunteer regularly.
However, in response to these concerns, Paul Chamberlin, the Assistant Vice President of Energy and Campus Development says that the program will absolutely not be eliminated, and the equine program will not be moved farther than the dairy farms. The land that the barns are located on will either provide more student housing, be used for private partnership, or be leased for commercial development; surfacing rumors say this commercial development may just be a new Walmart.
