Work Life Balance

At Plymouth State, we place great value on our faculty and staff achieving a healthy work/life balance. To support this culture of positive health, we provide leadership, opportunities, and programs for all our employees and their families.

Our Employee Assistance Program gives you access to information and resources to enhance your life and personal wellbeing. This site is a comprehensive resource for you and your family with information on personal growth, emotional wellness, parenting, managing change, self assessments, online training modules, and financial calculators.

Healthy PSU is a program across campus that offers information and resources for faculty and staff to take part in physical activity programs, learn about healthy eating, stress management, and health care cost management. In addition, you can take steps toward a healthier lifestyle with the Wellness Connection program. And Local Foods Plymouth makes it easy to purchase food & other products grown, raised, and made in the Plymouth, NH, area.

Our Center for Young Children and Families is a great place for children aged 13 months to 5 years. Open from September to June, with teachers who have Bachelor’s and/or Master’s degrees in Early Childhood, the center is licensed by the State of NH, and accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The University also has convenient Lactation Stations around campus.
