Fall 2020 Opening Information

Coordinating Preparation and Response

Plymouth State is working hard to prepare for students’ return. This and related webpages will include information for students and families, faculty and staff, and community members, and will be updated throughout the summer as issues arise and decisions are made.

We will provide regular updates over the summer as decisions are reached regarding when students can return to campus, and when and by what methods classes will be conducted. We hope to return to on-campus learning this fall, and are also working to provide hybrid delivery (both on campus and remote), so that no matter what happens during the year your education can continue on pace.

Task Force Formed

On May 8, 2020, the University System of New Hampshire (USNH), which includes Plymouth State University, announced that it intends to welcome students back to campuses for the fall term. The system as a whole is working closely with state leaders and health professionals to support a safe return, and each individual institution is planning for a range of scenarios. The full USNH announcement is available here.

PSU has formed a Fall Opening Task Force with involvement and representation from across campus. This group, led by Vice President for Communication, Enrollment & Student Life Marlin Collingwood, is comprised of 11 teams that are considering every aspect of opening, from academics and logistics to health and safety. Student input will be sought and incorporated into the process.
