It is a joy to present to you this publication on faculty and staff excellence at Plymouth State University.

In the profiles on this Web site, you will read about a few of the many talented, creative, and engaged professionals who form the PSU community. The people featured here have been selected by their peers to receive University awards this year, and they represent various fields of study and occupations. What they share is their commitment to excellence and to PSU’s mission as a regional comprehensive university focused on student success, discovery and innovation, and engagement with our state, region, and beyond.

As you read these award-winners’ words, and share in their accomplishments, you will understand their authentic commitment to students and to the work we do together. They live our University motto of Ut prosim (That I may serve) in the fullest sense, and they are the reason that Plymouth State is a wonderful place to live and learn. We are proud of their achievements.

On behalf of many others, I would like to thank these award winners for their many contributions and welcome our readers to this glimpse of PSU’s richness and vitality.
