DURHAM - The University of New Hampshire's Women's studies program made several posts that could be seen as favoring Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.
Friday a college spokeswoman said the school is troubled by the partisan nature of the posts. UNH says they encourage their community to be engaged citizens but as a University they don't take a political stance. Students on campus also say the posts are inappropriate.
"As a University you should offer your students the best aspect on both candidates not be partial to one or the other and then let the students voice their opinion there" said Dylan O'Neil, a senior at UNH.
"It kinda creates a bias on the campus and almost like sorta a voter intimidation environment" said Jake Bowen, also a senior at UNH.
NH1 News found one post on the page asking for smart, energetic people to help Clinton with her campaign. According to the Union Leader there had been several other posts that had been deleted as of Thursday. There is still an anti-Trump event on the page as of earlier Friday night. Other students say they understand why a women's studies program would be supporting a woman candidate.
"A lot of the stuff that's been going around on the news about what Trump did say about women and how he talks about women I think, all the more reason for people..women especially to support Hillary" said Sydney Duncan, a UNH student.
UNH says it is working with the department to review the posts.
