Statement from President Joan Ferrini-Mundy about UMaine’s return

University of Maine and University of Maine at Machias President Joan Ferrini-Mundy released a statement about the return to in-person learning this semester. 

“The University of Maine and its regional campus, the University of Maine at Machias, return for in-person learning and work as planned on Tuesday, Jan. 18,” President Ferrini-Mundy says. “UMaine students who have signed up for in-person classes should anticipate being with their professors and peers in the classroom from the start of the semester on Jan. 18. We have the option to pivot briefly to remote and alternative program delivery where we have to in order to manage individualized pandemic concerns, but our priority is delivering the in-person learning our students expect from Maine’s flagship university from day one of the spring semester.
