Community impact promotes community engagement including service learning projects, off campus FWS opportunities, service trips, and professional development tools and workshops for students.
High impact community engaged learning provides experiential opportunities for students off campus with partnering organizations. In this way students apply what they are learning in the classroom in practical settings that develop professional skill sets while positively impacting the community.
PSU is dedicated to serving the community within which we live. Through community service we are able to connect students, faculty and staff with service opportunities in Plymouth and surrounding communities.
We are committed to raising awareness of local, national, and international social concerns; an awareness which will mobilize us to action. We connect students to one-time on and off campus service events, on-going volunteer opportunities, and week long spring break trips.
Community Service Programs Include:
- Alternative Spring Break: Week long service experiences in communities throughout the United States.
- International Service Trip: Week long international service experience.
- PSU Volunteers: Student organization focused on making a difference in our surrounding communities.
Service learning provides students with the opportunity to earn academic credit by actively participating in and learning from scholarly activities undertaken to serve community needs.
PSU is proud to support local communities and businesses. We are always interested in new ways we can engage students and can support our local and global community. Though community partnerships our students are able to gain professional experience in service and their own area of study.
