Plymouth State University is committed to its motto, Ut prosim (That I may serve), and the belief that higher education is a public service for community development and civic education, as identified by Campus Compact.  This plan illustrates how PSU will leverage community partners and co-curricular student engagement through conscious leadership in service-learning and integrated clusters in order to bring high impact learning practices to open laboratories that foster community and civic engagement. To accomplish this commitment, PSU has identified three goals:

  1. To educate socially responsible active citizens and globally minded conscious leaders who are equipped to solve complex societal issues from an interdisciplinary perspective.
  2. To provide resources for faculty and staff to further their scholarship of engaged learning.
  3. To cultivate reciprocal, sustainable and equitable partnerships that enrich student learning, advance social justice, and transform individuals and communities
