About the Graduate School

Although graduate study at UNH dates back to 1893, the administrative organization remained rather informal until 1928 when the trustees approved the creation of a school of graduate study under a dean with an executive committee known as the Graduate Council. The first dean was Prof. Herman L. Slobin.
