For over one hundred years the University of Maine at Presque Isle has been making dreams a reality and helping students of all ages and backgrounds reach their educational goals.

Throughout our history, the accomplishments of this campus and our students have been made possible by generous members of the UMPI family (community, faculty/staff, alumni, and friends) giving their time, energy, and financial resources.  In fact, the establishment of the Aroostook State Normal School in 1903 was made possible by the hard work of local citizens and donations of money and land. Now, you can help carry on that legacy of giving by lending your skills or donating to the fund of your choice.



We will post volunteer opportunities here as they arise.
