Associate Professor of Community Leadership

 

In 2000, Barretto and colleague Kate Hanson cofounded the Community Leadership Program for students who want to become community leaders and activists. Among other things, students learn how to write public service announcements, press releases, and newsletters. The program won a Spirit of New Hampshire award in 2007.

"We felt there was a need for something in academia for those who want to be involved in changing the world in a positive way," Barretto says. "This is a way to teach people how to take action; how to take on leadership roles."
