In order to know where we’re going, it is important for us to know where we have been. As PSU changes higher education in New Hampshire and beyond by transforming to an integrated, interdisciplinary, cluster-based model, we cannot forget that our roots lie in teaching and preparing students to be active, influential citizens in the world around them.

To learn more about our history and its evolution from the Holmes Plymouth Academy (1808), Plymouth Normal School (1871), Plymouth Teachers College (1939), and Plymouth State College to Plymouth State University (2003), visit the Spinelli Archives in Lamson Learning Commons or this page on the PSU website.
