The Office of Community Impact fosters transformative learning experiences for PSU students to engage in active citizenship, explore their sense of purpose, and grow into conscious leaders who cultivate love and connection throughout our local and global communities.
Plymouth State University’s strong commitment to its motto, Ut Prosim, That I May Serve, is embodied through the work of the Office of Community Impact. This work would not be possible without the Student Ambassadors who contribute their skills, knowledge, energy, and hearts into helping to build a more compassionate and equitable world.
Community Impact Pathway
The Community Impact Pathway offers students a guided journey through community engaged learning experiences intentionally designed to develop PSU’s four Habits of Mind and eight NACE (National Association of Colleges and Employers) competencies. This tiered programmatic approach to co-curricular engagement supports students from exposure to service oriented activities, up through engagement in social action programs, and ultimately to a culminating leadership experience. To complete this pathway, students must engage in and reflect on five experiences at the Basecamp Member Level, two experiences at the Climbing Volunteer Level, and one experience at the Summiting Conscientious Citizen Level. Students who complete the Community Impact Pathway receive recognition on their co-curricular transcript and are honored through the Office of Community Impact upon graduation.
How was this pathway developed?
The Office of Community Impact designs programs based on the Active Citizenship Continuum, which was developed by Break Away. In this way, students have the opportunities to deepen their awareness of social issues and the ways in which we can address root causes in advancing social justice.

PSU is proud to support local organizations. We are always interested in new ways we can engage students and can support our local and global community. Through community partnerships our students are able to gain professional experience in service and their own area of study.
