A Message from Chancellor Malloy

Thanks to the hard work and commitment to public health of our entire higher education community, the University of Maine System continues to meet its commitment to being safely Together for Maine throughout the COVID-19 public health crisis. As we adjust to the changing nature of the pandemic to provide our students with a traditional, campus-based college experience, we remain committed to and will follow the science-based public health principles that reduce the risk of infection and help prevent serious illness.

Every student, faculty, and staff member at every one of our universities has a role to play in the success of our public health campaign and the leadership and service we provide to Maine and its people through the pandemic. Public higher education has never been more essential. We’re staying safely together through the pandemic so can continue delivering the learning research, service and knowledge needed to move Maine forward in the years to come.

Dannel P. Malloy, Chancellor
