Vision and Mission Statement
The teacher education programs at Plymouth State University strive to develop visionary educators who will take the lead in transforming education in the state, the region and the nation to better serve all students and their families. Our vision is rooted in Plymouth State’s tradition of service, emphasized in the University motto, “Ut Prosim—That I May Serve.” At the same time, we seek to anticipate and respond to changing demographics and societal expectations by reaching into communities with programs that will educate and inspire. Through collaborations with area schools and community organizations, we aim to emphasize our shared commitment to the education and well-being of all students. Above all, we endeavor to prepare competent and caring educators who exemplify the qualities of Commitment, Service, Vision and Leadership, and who, in turn, will cultivate these qualities in the students they teach.
