The primary academic activities of the Institute on Disability (IOD) at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) serve as interlinked and mutually reinforcing components of engaged scholarship. Each activity links to and strengthens the others to form a continuous feedback loop in a way that both helps preserve and honor the long academic tradition of a land grant university and also provides a powerful platform for contemporary academic activities such as capacity building and systems change within New Hampshire and beyond.
This report describes the IOD’s scholarly activities conducted between July 1, 2014, and June 30, 2015. A complete inventory or organizational curriculum vitae is included.
