New Hampshire magazine recognizes PSU for Global Education Efforts

May 3rd, 2011 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H.-
Plymouth State University President Sara Jayne Steen is listed as one of New Hampshire’s “Remarkable Women of the World” in the May, 2011 issue of New Hampshire magazine. Steen has served as PSU President since June, 2006.
Academic and student leaders at Plymouth State are adding a vibrant international dimension to this regional, comprehensive University.
Steen and her colleagues at PSU believe that informed world views and multicultural experiences enhance the transformative power of education. The New Hampshire magazine article lists seven women who are “heeding the call for global understanding, outreach and activism,” and recognizes Steen’s leadership and vision for global educational possibilities.

“The University has expanded far beyond the borders of the Granite State,” according to the magazine. “Numerous international programs that range from research to internships have forged an impressive array of global connections. Steen, who is a world traveler herself, believes that international education–whether that means working on an MBA in Shanghai or studying environmental science in New Zealand–will help students excel in a world that is increasingly connected.”

Plymouth State has ties with educational institutions in China, India, the Czech Republic, Ireland, England, Turkey, Italy, France, Romania and many more around the world. For example, PSU offers a master’s in education in Shanghai and a health care administration certificate in Antigua.

Steen and the other recipients will be honored by New Hampshire magazine at a Remarkable Women Breakfast on Wednesday, May 18 in Bedford.
