When you read in the following pages about some of the innovative and engaged professionals at Plymouth State University, about their commitment to students, to creativity and discovery, to service, and to the community and wider region, you will understand why Plymouth State University was named one of the Chronicle of Higher Education’s 2009 Great Colleges to Work For.
The reason is people like these, who care about advancing PSU’s mission, who care about each other, and who live the PSU motto, Ut prosim (That I may serve).
The faculty and staff members featured in Excellence come from departments across the campus, and they were chosen by their peers to receive University honors during the past year. We hope that through these brief profiles, you will have a sense of the voices and faces that are Plymouth State University. We hope that you will understand the energy, excitement, dedication, and joy that these colleagues share.
On behalf of many others, I would like to thank these award-winners for their contributions and welcome you to this glimpse of PSU’s depth and vibrancy.
