Over the decades, we've elevated our academic standards and off erings, evolving to ensure our students are equipped with the skills they need in an ever-changing social and professional landscape. is issue of Pierce Magazine showcases how we are meeting the needs not only of our students, but the larger community as well.

We want them to become part of the solution to the state's economy and also to bring the kinds of contributions that Franklin Pierce students typically carry to their communities. at's part of the good work we are doing now and will continue to do.
