President’s Community Conversation 2.0 Scheduled for Monday

On Monday, Oct. 29, University of Maine President Paul Ferguson will hold Community Conversation 2.0, his second annual discussion with the UMaine community.

The President’s Community Conversation 2.0 will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. in Wells Conference Center. This year, the President’s Community Conversation is being combined with the annual Employee Breakfast. For UMaine employees working evening shifts, an “evening breakfast” is scheduled for 9–10 that night.

Last October, President Ferguson held the first Community Conversation to share his first impressions of UMaine. He also described the collaborative process about to be initiated to shape a bold, pragmatic vision for UMaine’s future. That Conversation launched the “The Blue Sky Project: Reaffirming Public Higher Education at Maine’s Flagship University,” the strategic planning initiative led by a 26-member leadership team of faculty, staff, students and alumni.

Community Conversation 2.0 will focus on both achievements and challenges at UMaine this past year, and will introduce the Blue Sky Project Implementation Plan.
