College Dean Searches

The University of Maine, the state’s flagship and only comprehensive research university, is conducting four dean searches. We are seeking visionary leaders for our College of Natural Sciences, Forestry, and Agriculture; College of Education and Human Development; Honors College; and Graduate School of Business.

These leadership positions come at a particularly impactful time in the institution’s more than 150-year history. The University of Maine System recently received a $240 million investment from the Harold Alfond Foundation; it is the largest gift ever given to a public institution of higher education in New England and will propel to new heights the state’s largest educational, research, innovation and talent development asset. Along with our Strategic Vision and Values, which affirm our focus on fostering student success, discovering and innovating, and growing and advancing partnerships, this transformational gift provides an opportunity to attract exceptional and collaborative leaders to the University of Maine community. We seek applicants who lead effectively through meaningful change; value and uphold transparency; demonstrate a commitment to promoting and supporting diversity, inclusion, and equity; support world-changing research; encourage innovative teaching practices; recognizing and seize opportunities; and amplify the university’s profile.
