The Dean of Students & Frost House C.A.R.E Program
The Plymouth State University C.A.R.E. program provides holistic intervention and resource referral to connect students to appropriate campus and local resources supporting their success at PSU.
Through the use of a reporting tool, the C.A.R.E Form, faculty, staff, students, and family members are able to alert the Dean of Students office when a student may be in need or when they may have experienced an emergency or significant incident impacting their ability to succeed- temporarily or long term- in the campus environment.
Student safety is a top priority at Plymouth State. The University employs a police department whose staff consists of full-time and part-time police officers and student public safety officers who patrol the campus 24 hours a day.
