Awardee Spotlight

Welcome to the second annual Faculty Mentor Impact Awards celebration.

We are pleased to be able to recognize and celebrate all UMaine Faculty Mentors in this virtual environment.

Earlier this year, we asked students to nominate faculty members who had an important impact on them and the response was incredible.

Through online videos and announcements, we are featuring the nine faculty members who won 2020 Faculty Mentor Impact Awards.

Please take a moment to celebrate these –– and all of the faculty –– who are going above and beyond to educate and support UMaine students every day.

Now more than ever, it is important to recognize the dedication our faculty members bring to making the University of Maine have Global Impact with Local Relevance.
