Our Mission

Our identity is so much more than our name or a list of majors. PSU’s vision, mission, values, community members, and location truly define what it means to be a Panther (in case you didn’t already know, that’s our mascot!).

Plymouth State University serves the state of New Hampshire and the world beyond by transforming our students through advanced practices where engaged learning produces well-educated undergraduates and by providing graduate education that deepens and advances knowledge and enhances professional development.  With distinction, we connect with community and business partners for economic development, technological advances, healthier living, and cultural enrichment with a special commitment of service to the North Country and Lakes Region of New Hampshire.
