The Bangor Daily News reported on University of Maine System Chancellor James Page’s budget forum held at the University of Maine. Page told UMaine community members that reducing faculty size is the inevitable result of a budget shortfall that the entire system is facing. Page spoke alongside UMaine President Paul Ferguson and UMS trustees Samuel Collins and Gregory Johnson. Throughout the forum, UMaine was recognized for putting itself in a better financial position than other universities in the system. “The work that you have done has been, I think, in many respects exemplary,” Page said.
