PLYMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - Plymouth State University hopes its new Center for Business and Community Partnerships will help businesses and nonprofit groups while giving students real-world experience.

The center replaces the former Center for Rural Partnerships, tweaking its vision to focus specifically on the relationship between higher education and industry.

The change was proposed by Plymouth State President Donald Brix as part of a campus-wide reorganization that involves focusing on seven areas in which faculty and students will collaborate with businesses on issues of scientific, intellectual, social, economic, environmental and cultural importance.

Officials say the new center will play a leading role in those collaborations by connecting campus projects and initiatives with the needs of industry and the community.
