President Ferrini-Mundy quoted in BDN editorial on postsecondary education

Joan Ferrini-Mundy, president of the University of Maine and University of Maine at Machias, was quoted in the Bangor Daily News editorial “There is value in education beyond high school, no matter where you go to school.” “We need people to be lifelong learners,” said Ferrini-Mundy. The goal is for higher education “to suit a student’s own opportunity for purposeful work,” she said, and that can take many forms including liberal arts colleges, universities, community colleges, career and educational centers or training centers.
