About the Search

Students doing research

The University of Maine (UMaine), a member of the University of Maine System, seeks an accomplished and energetic leader to serve as the University’s 21st President, succeeding retiring President Susan J. Hunter.

The search is being conducted through an 18 member search committee under the oversight and procedures of the Board of Trustees of the University of Maine System. The search committee includes representatives of the faculty, students, staff, Trustees, Board of Visitors, and community. The University of Maine at Machias regional campus is represented by three members of the committee. The committee is chaired by Trustee Gregory Johnson.

The search committee is assisted in this work by Storbeck-Pimentel and Associates, executive search consultants. Shelly Weiss Storbeck, Managing Partner, is serving as lead consultant, assisted by Ethan Dubow, Associate.
