4 Dear Graduate Student: At the University of New Haven, we provide world-class career preparation in all of our programs, but our overarching goal is to prepare students to lead meaningful lives. As you examine this catalog and become aware of the breadth and diversity of our graduate programs, you will recognize the remarkable opportunity you are facing. You are about to embark on a journey in your chosen area of study that will help you grow personally, professionally, and educationally. Our hope, and our mission, is that this journey will help you achieve a more meaningful career, the benefits of life-long learning, and the sense of your responsibility as a citizen of the world. The Graduate School at UNH was founded in 1969 and is one of the largest in Connecticut. Our advanced-degree alumni are employed in private industry and the public sector throughout the state, across the nation, and around the world. The overwhelming majority of our faculty hold doctoral or terminal degrees in their respective fields, and in many cases they bring with them national and international reputations in those fields. They also have professional, realworld experience that is especially vital to students careers. They are committed in unrivaled ways to the success of each and every one of their students. A wide range of support services is also available to you at UNH, and we are constantly trying to improve and enrich the educational experience of our graduate students in many ways. One of my favorite quotations is from the late Ernest Boyer, a former president of the Carnegie Foundation, who once warned that the crisis of our time relates not to technical competence, but to a loss of the social and historical perspective, to the disastrous divorce of competence from conscience. As you focus your studies in your chosen field, I hope you will also allow yourself some time to question your own values as well as prevailing societal values and look for ways to improve the world that you will help form as a member of a global society. I wish you success in your studies and personal enrichment through your experiences at the University of New Haven. Please come to see me if there is ever anything I can do to assist you. Sincerely, Steven H. Kaplan, President

16 Accreditation Regional The University of New Haven is a comprehensive, nonsectarian, independent institution of higher learning, chartered by the General Assembly of the State of Connecticut and accredited by the Board of Governors for Higher Education of the State of Connecticut. It is also accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. (NEASC), a nongovernmental, nationally recognized organization whose affiliated institutions include elementary schools through collegiate institutions offering postgraduate instruction. NEASC accreditation of an institution indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied through a peer group review process. An accredited school or college is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated mission through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation. NEASC accreditation is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a guarantee of the quality of every course or program offered or of the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about the quality of opportunities available to students. Engineering The bachelor of science degree programs in chemical, civil, electrical, industrial, and mechanical engineering are fully accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). The Computer Science bachelor s degree program is fully accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
