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