November 2021 Update

Unified Accreditation Update

As part of Chancellor Malloy’s just-completed fall visits to our seven universities and the Maine Law School, he and members of his senior staff took full advantage of opportunities to discuss the Unified Catalog initiative with faculty, professional staff, deans, and others. We appreciated the candid and constructive nature of those conversations, and have been gratified to see them bear significant fruit, as a number of faculty and student-support professionals have volunteered to participate in work being piloted early next year. We expect to communicate further in January about that work. In the interim, we’re partnering with University of Maine System Information Technology (UMS:IT) to create the Unified Catalog website, which will house a wealth of information about our Unified Catalog efforts and be linked to the Unified Accreditation site.
