UNH School of Law receives $1 million grant
April 25, 2013
More individuals are getting post-secondary educations today than ever before, and a large volume then go on to pursue graduate degrees. As such, many of these campuses have had to expand recently to facilitate larger classes, more courses and new living arrangements for an increasing number of students.
Administrators at the University of New Hampshire School of Law might find this easier to cope with, as the institution was recently the recipient of a $1 million grant given by the Peter G. Peterson Foundation. The money will be put toward a Fiscal Responsibility Institute within the Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership and Public Policy. It will also establish an annual conference during which Center members will discuss national budget challenges.
"Warren Rudman was the rarest of public servants, not only in office but when he left office. He did everything he could, and way before it was in fashion, to encourage both parties to become serious about our fiscal reality," Foundation chairman Pete Peterson noted, explaining why the group chose to donate.
The Peter G. Peterson Foundation was created in 2008 and has since taken a hands-on approach to uncover and solve challenges that might affect the fiscal future of the United States.
