The University of Maine at Presque Isle has a long history of preparing students to serve the needs of the northern Maine region, our state, and places around the world. Founded as a teacher's college in the early 1900s, UMPI has evolved into a comprehensive university providing quality professional programs built upon a solid foundation in the arts, sciences, and humanities. We strive to offer the best education available in northern Maine and nearby Canada and aspire to be the flagship University of Maine campus in Northern Maine.
The Provost and Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs brings together under one office the services meant to help students both in terms of academics and other aspects of their student life experience. The Provost oversees the Academic Programs, Student Affairs, the Library, the Center for Innovative Learning, the Registrar, and Advising. The Provost also has responsibility for the Art Gallery, Cultural Affairs, and the Northern Maine Museum of Science.
Within Academic Affairs, the Provost is responsible for oversight of all majors, minors, and concentrations, and supports the Faculty in delivering the highest quality curriculum possible. The Provost also supports Faculty in their scholarly and professional pursuits.
Within Student Affairs, the Provost is responsible for oversight of non-academic services that impact our students, including Residence Life, Health Services and Counseling, Career Preparation and Testing Services. The Provost also provides support for efforts like TRiO Upward Bound and the National Student Exchange program.
Within the Center for Innovative Learning, the Provost provides oversight for Student Support Services, Library Services and Student Engagement efforts.
It is the University's goal to provide an immersive education that impacts students' lives whether they are in the classroom, the dorms, the library, or taking advantage of any of the student-focused services and activities we offer. Our campus believes that the best way to do this is to provide high quality services in an environment where both academic affairs and student affairs are aligned and working together to positively impact student success.
