Senator, Extension pest specialist Dill writes about UMaine R1 designation for Penobscot Times

Jim Dill, pest management specialist at the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, penned an article for the Penobscot Times about UMaine achieving R1 designation from the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. “As a state senator, Old Town resident and faculty member, I’m extraordinarily proud to see this occasion arrive for the University. It’s exciting to know that in the years to come we won’t be relying on folks outside of Maine for new research and innovations, but rather that our very own flagship university, right in our own backyard, will be leading the way and moving our state forward,” Dill wrote.
