The University of Maine System Board of Trustees has approved promotion and/or tenure for 22 University of Maine faculty members.

“These faculty are among our academic leaders, providing some of the best teaching, research and community outreach in their fields,” says Ferguson. “We appreciate their caliber of excellence, innovation, inquiry and commitment to our students and state, and we celebrate their achievement. They are key to helping UMaine reach its goal of being among the most student-centered and community-engaged research universities in the country.”
