The Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership & Public Service is very pleased to announce Laura Knoy as its new Community Engagement Director.

In this role, Ms. Knoy will work with the Rudman Center’s Director, John Greabe, to convene events for University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce Law students and the public alike, with a goal of widening dialogue and understanding around issues of justice, law, and public policy. 

“After many years of collaborating with the Rudman Center on various one-time events, I’m excited to work with the Center in a more strategic way,” Knoy said. “The Center is already seen in New Hampshire as a key facilitator of important, timely conversations and I hope to help it continue and broaden that work.”

"We are beyond thrilled to be expanding our relationship with Laura Knoy," said John Greabe, the Rudman Center's director. "Laura will be instrumental in helping us to grow and deepen our partnerships with other civic engagement organizations, and to plan and execute public conversations, lectures, and symposia responsive to the extraordinary times in which we are living."

Laura Knoy is widely known and respected in New Hampshire and New England for her in-depth coverage of critical issues, probing interviews of newsmakers, and an ability make topics accessible to a general audience. For 25 years, Laura hosted live, daily conversations on NHPR’s The Exchange, an award-winning statewide radio call-in program. In June 2021, she stepped away from the host’s chair to pursue other interests, including writing her first novel. In addition to working with the Rudman Center, Ms. Knoy is hosting the interview series Beyond Your Balance Sheet and the podcast ReadLocalNH.
