PSU names Campus Compact for New Hampshire Award Winners: Maria Sanders, Monica McKeon, and the White Mountain National Forest Honored for Civic Efforts.
A student volunteer, a philosophy professor and a federal agency were chosen by Plymouth State University to be honored by the Campus Compact for New Hampshire (CCNH) at its annual Presidents’ Awards presentation April 8 in Bedford. CCNH is a statewide consortium of college and university presidents dedicated to advancing the civic purposes of higher education. PSU president Sara Jayne Steen said that such community engagement epitomizes Plymouth State University’s motto, Ut prosim (That I may serve).
“We are so grateful for the extraordinary engagement we see here,” Steen said. “Students, faculty and staff, and regional partners step up to make a difference in the lives of New Hampshire’s citizens. PSU’s motto is Ut prosim (That I May Serve), and it is lived here through strong partnerships, as people come together with energy and innovation to solve problems.”
