Mission Statement

Mission Statement

The President’s Commission on the Status of Women was first established by President William Farrell in 1991. It is comprised of female and male PSU community members including undergraduate, non-traditional, and graduate students, as well as Operating Staff, PAT’s and Faculty.
The Mission of the President’s Commission is six-fold:

  • To identify broad-based and special concerns and issues for women at Plymouth State University.
  • To create and recommend policies to improve the climate for women and guarantee an environment of equal educational and employment opportunities.
  • To collaborate with existing organizations to promote a non-sexist and nondiscriminatory environment.
  • To inform the University community on the status of women by collecting data, initiating and supporting outreach programs, and by preparing and disseminating informational publications.
  • To help women develop their skills, continue their education and increase networking by suggesting, and assisting in, the implementation of informational and educational programs.
  • To stimulate thinking regarding the basic social changes occurring in our society as newly defined roles for women and men emerge.
