Communication Transparency

As a matter of policy, practice and transparency, Plymouth State University maintains an openness of communication consistent with decades of collegiate and collegial practices. Discussions are encouraged among campus groups in many areas of campus life, institutional operations, and strategic planning. Open channels of dialogue and mutually constructive relationships exist with community leaders and nearby neighbors to the campus.

Plymouth State University is committed to openness in providing useful information in formats that are accessible to students, faculty, staff, and the public.  Plymouth State University makes every effort to provide information that is complete, accurate, and up-to-date. All institutional information, including the website, is reviewed regularly for accuracy and effectiveness. We use a variety of formats, including print and electronic, to communicate academic expectations, promote academic offerings, share University news, and promote University events. The University is also engaged with constituents through social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, YouTube), making the best use of these channels for recruitment, program promotion and publicity, disseminating campus news, and to quickly address questions or concerns.

All policies regarding admission, transfer of credit, academic requirements, policies and procedures, expectations regarding student conduct, procedures for complaints and appeals, information regarding student fees, and charges and refund policies are available on the website and through the myPlymouth portal, accessible by the Plymouth State community. The University prepares two catalogs, one each for undergraduate and graduate programs, provided to the general public in electronic-only formats.

Specific educational goals and student-learning outcomes for each academic program are published on the program web pages. Institutional data, such as retention, graduation rates and other educational statistics, are tracked by Institutional Research and published on the PSU-IR web pages.

Information regarding faculty credentials and department affiliation, as well as names and positions of administrative officers and names and affiliations of members of the governing board, are published in the catalogs, in the campus directory, and on the respective academic program web pages.

Additional information such as the PSU Mission Statement, accreditation statements, admissions standards, characteristics of the student body, availability of support services, and information on student life are also found at plymouth.edu. Audited financial statements are available at usnh.edu through the University System of New Hampshire, of which PSU is a member.
