The Official Announcement

On Feb. 13, 2014, the University held a press conference in Bangor to announce its transition to personalized learning, a move that made UMPI the first university in Maine and one of the first in the nation to deliver this type of interactive learning. Acting Maine Commissioner of Education Jim Rier, University of Maine System Chancellor James Page, Educate Maine board member Yellow Light Breen, and Great Schools Partnership Senior Policy Advisor Duke Albanese were on hand to help UMPI President Linda Schott announce the news.

For those who would like to see the complete remarks that were delivered during the press event, we’ve uploaded six video segments to our youtube page. Click on the links below to watch these video segments.
