President speaks with News Center about Commencement 2021

University of Maine President Joan Ferrini-Mundy spoke with News Center Maine about the 2021 commencement in repose to an online petition calling for an in-person ceremony. “We have committees meeting regularly to look at what other possibilities might open up to us if state civil guidance should change,” Ferrini-Mundy said.  “I have (the petition) and I’m appreciative when students speak out and let us know how concerned they are. It comes along with some plans and some ideas. All of this is in the hands of our Commencement Committee.”
