Service Learning Partnership

Service Learning Partnership Initiative

Plymouth State University is committed to engaging students in meaningful academic service learning experiences that will enhance their educational experience.  This commitment has resulted in a unique and collaborative partnership between the Office of Research and Engagement at Plymouth State University, the Pemi Youth Center, and Granite United Way.  The partnership focuses on working collaboratively across sectors and advancing the institutional mission of service throughout the community through intentional engagement.
