The University of Maine at Presque Isle, a publicly supported, baccalaureate institution located in northern Maine, provides broad educational opportunities for a diverse student body, with particular reference to the people of its region and state.

The University emphasizes professional programs and a balanced curriculum that promotes a strong foundation in the arts and sciences. Undergraduate study includes a variety of majors leading to baccalaureate degrees in teacher education, career and professional fields, health and human services, arts and sciences, and the natural environment. The Universities of Maine at Fort Kent, Machias and Presque Isle offer a new model for distance baccalaureate programs within the state through the Tri-Campus Consortium for Distance Education.

The University affirms as central to its mission, commitment to the following ideals:

- close student, faculty, and staff interaction in support of intellectual growth and personal development;

- diversities of culture, age, and nationality among both students and staff;

- public service which promotes the well-being of the state’s citizenry; and,

- a global consciousness.
