In keeping with the University of Maine System’s commitment to the students of Maine’s Public Universities and the University of Maine School of Law, the University of Maine System is launching a comprehensive and system-wide strategic planning effort to ensure the effective coordination and assessment of strategic activities that fulfill our tripartite mission to benefit all University of Maine System students and the State of Maine. The process will recognize the ongoing strategic plans of universities, and articulate a five-year vision that leverages the advantages of Unified Accreditation to achieve a fiscally sustainable institution while maintaining the quality and impact for which our universities are known.
