Welcome to the State of the University Address. Thank you for attending this afternoon. This is a time for us to gather to discuss Plymouth State University’s progress toward our goals, to explore our successes and our challenges. It is part of my being accountable to you as we are accountable to our wider public. As I speak of challenges, I will focus today on how the recession is affecting PSU and what we are doing to protect and advance the University, and I will speak on these issues at some length. Before I do so, however, let me speak of what it is we are protecting.

Welcome to the State of the University Address. It’s hard to believe that it has been almost two years since you welcomed me as Plymouth State University’s fourteenth president and a year since we gathered for the investiture. Thank you for attending this afternoon.

During the investiture, I told you that I wanted to introduce a State of the University Address as part of my being accountable to each of you, as we are accountable to the wider world, about Plymouth State’s progress toward our goals. The occasion is an opportunity to celebrate some of the past year’s successes, to highlight what you and our students have accomplished; and also to delineate the challenges we face as we move forward and the issues on which we must work together. A university has many departments. Today we bring together our varied voices and constituencies to examine Plymouth State University as a whole.
