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.

At the University of Maine, we understand the need to balance our professional and personal responsibilities.

“Our policies and programs strive to offer faculty the support and flexibility to build successful careers and fulfill personal lives.”

Dr. Paul Ferguson
University of Maine President
