WABI reports on state legislators’ visit to UMaine

WABI-TV (Channel 5 in Bangor) reported that more than 80 Maine legislators took the bus to school Wednesday for a hands-on look at some of the newest innovations at the University of Maine. The biennial bus tour across Eastern Maine began with a focus on UMaine’s workforce development, including the new Ferland Engineering Education and Design Center. ”We want to be sure that our legislative colleagues know that the resources here at the University of Maine and across the University of Maine System are really serving the state, and I’m so pleased that we have partners here. Students are heavily involved in all of this work, in everything that the legislators are seeing. We engage undergraduates and graduate students who can then become the workforce of tomorrow,” said President Joan Ferrini-Mundy. KWCH-TV (Channel 12 in Wichita, Kansas), WLOX-TV (Channel 13 in Biloxi, Mississippi) shared the WABI report.
