Blue Sky Plan

Site Navigation:

From the President

Welcome to the Blue Sky Plan Website

As we move into Year 3 of the Blue Sky Plan, we anticipate a continuing evolution from the initial year of creation, the second year of implementation, to, now, the third year of full integration and sustainability. Going forward, the President’s Cabinet, working with campus constituencies, will assume focused responsibility for implementation of each of the major initiatives and strategies.
The former Pathway Teams will fold naturally into new advisory committees to the respective Vice Presidents that will include campus forums seeking regular feedback.

The Blue Sky Vision for the University of Maine focuses on our aspiration to be the most student-centered and community-engaged of the American Research Universities. The strategic initiatives to accomplish this vision are organized in the Five Pathways described below:

This Website is the official site for ongoing communications with UMaine constituencies including announcements and progress reports. The progress to accomplishing each of these Pathway strategies can be followed on this website and we invite you to follow that progress, attend a Blue Sky Forum, or provide your comments.

We invite you to join us in Blue Sky Thinking to promote excellence at the University of Maine.

With best regards,

Paul W. Ferguson
