College merger set to be completed in July
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — The final phase of the merger between New Hampshire Institute of Art and New England College is expected to be completed July 1.
Along with rebranding the new program as the Institute of Art and Design at New England College, the college will be taking advantage of the additional space in Manchester. It plans to relocate its graduate program in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Concord to Lowell Hall in Manchester, as a first step toward expanding graduate offerings. The Master of Arts in Public Policy program will be relocating to the Manchester campus.
It also plans to sell several properties in Manchester, Sharon, and Peterborough over the next several months and phase out community arts programs and other activities it has offered in Sharon and Peterborough later this summer.
