Chester College of New England is a bachelor's degree-granting college that provides a foundation in the liberal arts and the fine arts, complemented by majors in the professional arts. Located in Chester, New Hampshire, the degree programs include fine art, graphic design, photography and media arts, creative writing, professional writing, and interdisciplinary arts. Minors are offered in photojournalism, creative writing, professional writing-publishing and illustration. The college was founded in 1965 as White Pines College by Faith Preston, Ed.D., who sought to create a post-secondary learning environment that focused on the needs of the individual student in a way that larger institutions could not. The name was changed in 2002 when the college expanded from a 2-year program to a 4-year college. The college features a low student-to-faculty ratio (12:1), artist- and writer-in-residence programs, and a program of guest lectures, exhibitions, art and photography exhibits, internships, and relationships with professional associations. On June 30, 2007, Dr. William Nevious stepped down as the college's president after five years at the helm. Nevious was credited with orchestrating unprecedented growth during his time at Chester College. On June 22, former Manchester Mayor Robert Baines was named interim president. He served half a year before announcing his intention to remain as permanent president. He is now beginning his second year at Chester College of New England . Notable faculty include published authors David Crouse (former faculty) and Robert W. Crawford (former faculty), as well as Christina Pitsch and Darrell Matsumoto.
