“We are excited to welcome Dr. Donald Birx as the new president of Plymouth State University,” stated University System of New Hampshire Board Chair Pamela Diamantis. “While Dr. Birx comes with a deep commitment to preserving the value and traditions that have made PSU a strong partner in the North Country, he also has a well-established track record of forging external relationships with the business community and organizations that enable students to explore experiential learning opportunities that will be of great value to our next generation workforce. A commitment to PSU’s sense of community with a proven ability to chart a new and bold course makes Dr. Birx an ideal choice to lead Plymouth State University into the future.”
