Recently Plymouth State University has partnered with the Bank of New Hampshire to enhance the newly opened AllWell North Building. This partnership was not only between Plymouth State Administration and the Bank of New Hampshire, but also between Plymouth State Athletics and Plymouth State Academics and the Plymouth community.
This partnership is a clear example of transdisciplinarity work within the community as a company from outside of Plymouth State is helping Plymouth State University. This partnership has increased quality in athletic facilities as well as funds for classrooms, conferences, and other events held in AllWell North. This building will also be used for community walks and other activities since the funds help provide for more staff to maintain the building. Knowledge from business personnel, athletics, as well as administrators were all essential in the building of this partnership and creating the plan for improvements in the buildings. This collaboration is a perfect example of multi-disciplinarity work being done not only for the institution, but for the community.
Without the effort from all of these different groups the improvements would have been made with considerations to all different disciplines. Reaching across the disciplines allowed for funds to be used to benefit all areas of need from hosting conferences and commencement to collegiate athletic and community events. Receiving input from different people with different backgrounds allows for expansion for the good of all people and creation of a place that is a true melting pot of disciplines and/or interests.
