Welcome to the University of Maine!

As President of the University of Maine I have learned much about this remarkable campus and community.  The impact of UMaine’s exceptional academic, research and student life programs is evident throughout the campus, our local community, the state of Maine and our nation.  This extraordinary record of success is made possible through the daily efforts of those in the UMaine community including individuals, families and businesses unselfishly contributing to UMaine’s legacy.

I hope that you will explore UMaine’s website to learn more about our inspiring undergraduate students and graduate students, our world class faculty, our dedicated alumni, our outstanding academic offerings, research programs, and public outreach through Cooperative Extension, the arts, and athletics that have all contributed in special ways to the University of Maine being regarded as one of the top public land-grant, research universities in the country.

Even better, I hope you will visit our campus and discover first-hand what makes UMaine a wonderful learning and living environment, a place of cultural value and entertainment, and a dynamic partner in research and economic development.  I am confident you will find a match for your interests and a warm Black Bear welcome during your stay on campus.

With best regards,

Paul W. Ferguson
President
