Welcome to the Office of the President

President Susan J. Hunter

Welcome to the University of Maine.

Nearly three decades ago, I joined the UMaine community as a faculty member and researcher. I came to UMaine for the opportunities it offered, for the leadership it demonstrated as Maine’s flagship university, and the dedication it embodied as the state’s land and sea grant institution through its mission of teaching, research and public engagement.

Today, those hallmarks of a distinctively student-centered and community engaged American research university are stronger than ever at UMaine.

We invite you to learn more about UMaine, which celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2015. We define tomorrow with our successful undergraduate and graduate students, our nationally and internationally recognized faculty, our dedicated staff statewide and our more than 107,000 alumni worldwide.

Visit our campus in person or online. You’ll discover a vibrant, comprehensive academic and cultural environment that embraces diversity, innovation and stewardship. We look forward to sharing the UMaine experience with you.

Susan J. Hunter, Ph.D.
