Regional media covered Thursday’s announcement that James Page of Old Town, a UMaine adjunct professor of philosophy, has been named the chancellor of the UMaine System. The Portland Press Herald noted Page has been a member of the UMaine Board of Visitors and UMaine Foundation. In a Maine Public Broadcasting Network radio report, Page said the skill sets he developed as a philosophy professor transferred to the world of business. Portland TV station WMTW had a story about Page’s hiring, and Seacoast Online, which includes newspapers in southern Maine and New Hampshire, ran an Associated Press report.
