Plymouth State University Launches Visionary Integrated Academic Structure

From the press release:

PLYMOUTH, NH (June 20, 2016) − Plymouth State University (PSU) is transforming its overall academic structure to better prepare students to succeed in the global economy and strengthen PSU’s ties with New Hampshire’s business community. Today, the university announced a bold, multi-year reorganization plan that will prepare students for an active role in the revitalization of the region’s economy. Currently the University has 24 undergraduate academic departments organized under three (3) colleges (Arts and Sciences, Business Administration and Education, Health and Human Services) and a graduate studies program for master’s and doctoral students. The new structure is based on an integrated liberal arts education that gives the students the ability to think critically and link across multiple disciplines. It will be organized into seven (7) interdisciplinary academic clusters, and feature open labs and collaborative partnerships with community and industry to provide students with integrated learning, research, and service opportunities.

Unlike the traditional program framework at most colleges, this new model, focused on innovation and entrepreneurship, will create opportunities for Plymouth State University students, faculty and community partners to work together on real-world challenges and projects.
