Welcome to the Division of Marketing and Communications
The University of Maine is the state’s flagship university, with a statewide mission of teaching, research and public service. It is Maine’s research university and graduate institution, with the most comprehensive academic offerings in the state. Those distinctions are key to the UMaine undergraduate student experience, highlighted by research opportunities and community engagement. As Maine’s land grant and sea grant institution, the University of Maine is a leader, a steward and an innovator. UMaine helps drive the state’s economic development, conducts internationally recognized research and provides outreach in every county of Maine. The UMaine community includes more than 2,500 employees statewide, over 11,200 students from across the U.S. and 65 countries, and 105,000 alumni worldwide.
In 2015, the University of Maine celebrates its 150th anniversary.
The Division of Marketing and Communications is principally responsible for presenting the story and maintaining the image of the University of Maine to all UMaine constituencies, including the media, public and UMaine community.
Toward this end, the Division of Marketing and Communications guides and partners with all UMaine communicators, providing counsel and services in newswriting and media relations, marketing, graphic design, photography and video production, and Web-based services, with the goal of producing internal and external high-quality messaging consistent with UMaine positioning, branding and strategic priorities.
