Plymouth State University is making a dramatic shift, moving from a traditional university structure to a cluster-based model, which will give students a new combination of education and engaged scholarship necessary to compete successfully in an increasingly complex and demanding world.

The leadership and vision behind this come courtesy of President Donald Birx. “There’s a reason why people are questioning the value of higher education, at a time when it’s more valuable than ever. What if we can turn them into transformative elements for the regions in which they serve and the students which come out of that?”

Don shares his perspective on innovation, commerce, and economic growth that is driving demands on institutions to engage and educate graduates in new ways. President Birx believes the cluster model will excite and drive graduates to adapt to the world beyond the walls of PSU, and we’re eager to find out why this week.
