Academic Affairs Faculty Forums

Welcome to the Academic Affairs Faculty Forum website

The Academic Affairs Faculty Forums are designed to create a venue for meaningful sharing of ideas about important initiatives in Academic Affairs. As we move forward together to advance the UMaine mission, collaboration between the faculty and administration of the university is essential to advancement toward our strategic goals. The forums are one venue for this collaboration. This website is designed to extend the collaboration beyond the public meeting. After each forum, we will post relevant materials and create a space where faculty members can submit reactions, comments or questions generated by the forum.

The Academic Affairs Faculty Forums are being scheduled for the 2019-2020 academic year. The dates, times, and topics for the forums are listed below when confirmed.
