Penobscot Times notes name change to Clement and Linda McGillicuddy Humanities Center
The Penobscot Times ran a release about the University of Maine Humanities Center’s new name — the Clement and Linda McGillicuddy Humanities Center — that reflects the generous support of Clement McGillicuddy ’64 and wife, Linda. They support the Humanities Center through a fund they established at the University of Maine Foundation. The two met in New York City while working in the computer industry, and are committed to giving back to a state that means a great deal to their family. “The University of Maine exposed me to many new situations, including an introductory course that required us to pick up and read The New York Times every day,” said Clement McGillicuddy. “To this day, The New York Times feeds my deep interest in the human condition and how the world works. Many of my courses at UMaine, unrelated to my major, contributed to my curiosity and created a foundation for lifelong learning.” The Clement and Linda McGillicuddy Humanities Center advances teaching, research and public knowledge of the humanities. By developing and supporting programs that engage art, literature, history, philosophy, politics and diverse cultures, the MHC aims to enrich the lives of all Maine citizens.
