Action Plan on Retention and Graduation – Implementation update

The University of Maine is committed to providing the best possible academic and interpersonal experience for our students.  This effort is critical as we endeavor to develop engaged, active and successful students who will make a real difference in Maine, the region and beyond.  Provost Hecker’s commitment to the importance of this work is evidenced in the Provost’s Action Plan for Retention and Graduation.  This data-informed plan was developed by faculty and administrators serving on the Advisory Group on Retention and Graduation over the 2013-2014 academic year.

This forum provided an update on implementation activities of the Action Plan undertaken during year one (2014-2015) of the plan’s two-year implementation.  One important component of the plan is the “Think 30″ initiative.  Please visit the website below to learn more through a fact sheet and video about this important work.

Finally, the Provost shared updates on the UMS “One University for all of Maine” initiative, especially related to Academic Affairs.  Please see a link below for the 2/10/15 One University for all of Maine document.
