About Maine Impact Week

Maine Impact Week is a week-long experience occurring in April of every year, culminating in the UMaine Student Symposium (UMSS) held on Friday. Events are hosted by groups all over campus and featured on the Maine Impact Week website.

Maine Impact Week is intended to provide an opportunity for the public to gain awareness about the latest efforts by Maine’s research university in contributing to the social and economic advancement of Maine and beyond.

Every year we celebrate University of Maine research and creative work with a variety of programming. Check our website to see all the events as they become part of the week.
