About Us

Our Mission

The Plymouth State University Counseling Center is dedicated to enhancing the psychosocial development of each Plymouth State University student, as well as contributing toward the health and vitality of the institution. This is accomplished through the provision of individual and group counseling, prevention services, and systemic changes that encourage and sustain an institutional climate that promotes interpersonal and intrapersonal well-being.

Diversity Statement

Everyone is Welcome Here

The Plymouth State University Counseling Center endorses the broadest possible view of diversity while supporting all students as they strive to achieve their educational goals regardless of age, race, ethnicity, nationality, immigration status, socioeconomic status, ability, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, and/or linguistic orientation. As a staff, we strive to be open, informed, aware, accepting, inclusive, mindful and respectful in all our decisions and actions.

We recognize that bias, prejudice and discrimination may manifest themselves in individual and/or systemic ways, and often result in creating feelings of isolation, disconnection, grief, uncertainty, anxiety, anger and fear. These acts of “bias, prejudice and discrimination,” whether perpetrated unconsciously or not, diminish the quality of the educational experience for all. 

Our Center is committed to the values of anti-racism, inclusion, and multicultural diversity. Our staff is committed to providing culturally informed treatment and support to all students; identifying and addressing individual and/or systemic acts of discrimination and bigotry; and promote the wellbeing of all PSU students.

Land Acknowledgment

We acknowledge that Plymouth State University is located on N’dakinna, which is the traditional ancestral homeland of the Abenaki, Pennacook and Wabanaki Peoples past and present. We acknowledge and honor with gratitude the land and waterways and the alnobak (people) who have stewarded N’dakinna throughout the generations. This land continues to be unceded, and some of these peoples are currently lacking federal recognition. 

We are on indigenous land
