Manchester Area Colleges Consortium

Manchester is the college town of New Hampshire, with about 8,000 students attending the city's nine higher education institutions. MCPHS University's membership in two consortia provides opportunities for participation in academic programs, athletic and cultural events, and other activities in preparing an educated work­force for New Hampshire and the region.

MACC, an initiative of the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce and Manchester's ten higher education institutions, was created to introduce the area business community and citizens to the numerous opportunities their presence provides.

Area institutions of higher learning work collaboratively to bring attention to the 16,000 students and college employees in the region.

The eleven colleges that form the membership of the consortium include:

  • Ches­ter College of New England
  • Franklin Pierce University-Manchester
  • Granite State College
  • Hesser College
  • MCPHS University
  • Manchester Community College
  • New Hampshire Institute of Art
  • Saint Anselm College
  • Southern N.H. University
  • Springfield College
  • University of New Hampshire at Manchester
