University Advancement

Welcome! Alumni, students, parents, friends—your relationship with Plymouth State is as important to us as it is to you. Even with almost 30,000 alumni, 7,000 students, and scores of parents and friends across the country and around the globe, we strive to maintain the close-knit community feeling for which Plymouth State is known.

You know that Plymouth State University is an amazing place. The University Advancement team (Alumni Relations, Development, Annual Fund, Advancement Communications, and Advancement Services) works to engage advocates and supporters like you to maintain and enhance that amazing experience for today’s students…and the next generations, too.

There are endless opportunities for you to make a difference for Plymouth State today, and in turn, provide for its future. Serving on the Alumni Association Board of Directors, organizing class reunions or receptions, advocating on behalf of the University, sharing your expertise with students and alumni, coming to or hosting networking events, and directing your philanthropy to the University are just a few ways that you can get involved and show your support.

The goals of University Advancement are to:

  • engage you in a lifelong connection with the Plymouth State community;
  • enable you to advocate for the University and forge relationships that advance our educational mission;
  • provide opportunities for your direct involvement with the education of students and their transitions to their chosen careers; and
  • invite you to take a direct part in making a Plymouth State education available to current and future generations of students through your personal gifts.
