A kit for the media.


The UMaine Student Symposium (UMSS) is an annual event that celebrates undergraduate and graduate student research and creative work. Students from a variety of disciplines present their achievements with posters, oral talks and exhibits.

It’s the ideal occasion for the community to interact one-on-one and see how UMaine students’ work impacts locally – and beyond.

UMSS is free and open to the public.

For media inquires and requests for resources, interviews or general questions please contact Christel Peters.
