UNH Women's Studies program criticized for pro-Clinton posts on Facebook page

DURHAM — Some partisan posts from The University of New Hampshire Women Studies's Facebook page have been removed after they were found troubling by university officials.

The Women's Studies department allegedly posted several things promoting Hillary Clinton's campaign, her speeches, and anti-Donald Trump events. The group also even offered up their supplies in order to help students make signs for the protests against President-elect Trump, according to The Union Leader.

One of the posts on UNH Women's Studies Program Facebook page before being deleted.

“UNH is troubled by the partisan nature of many social media posts by the women’s studies department. UNH encourages its students, faculty and staff to be engaged citizens but as a university we do not advocate for particular candidates or political parties. Those posts will be taken down,” Erika Mantz told the UL, UNH director of media relations, on Wednesday.
