Resources - Achieving Work-Life Balance

PAGE UNDER CONSTRUCTION. Check back soon for new information!

Achieving Work-Life balance is not easy. 
It’s an ongoing process that requires a little juggling, or sometimes, a lot of juggling. But it helps to know that the University recognizes us as individuals with priorities outside the workplace.

We understand the need to balance professional and personal responsibilities.

“The University of Maine is committed to the health and well-being of its employees and students. A key to that commitment is providing work-life balance resources, including family-friendly policies and practices that support personal and professional growth.”

Dr. Susan Hunter
University of Maine President
