University of Maine Vice President for Enrollment Management Jimmy Jung was interviewed about UMaine enrollment for an Associated Press article about enrollments within the University of Maine System. Several news outlets, including the Bangor Daily News, the Boston Globe website and The Republic in Columbus, Ind., ran the report. In spite of almost universal enrollment declines, Jung said that UMaine saw a 12 percent increase in first-year students and incoming transfers from last year. He also mentioned several steps the system’s flagship university is taking to boost the numbers even more. An Associated Press article published on Boston.com about classes beginning at University of Maine campuses noted that UMaine has the largest enrollment in the UMaine System, with more than 11,000 students.
