From our programs to our graduates to the many ways they make an impact on the world, there is so much that makes the University of Maine at Presque Isle unique. On this Points of Pride page, though, we’ve singled out just a few of the exciting things you need to know about UMPI. These are things that fill us with #OwlPride and connect back to our service promise of “Excellence, every day!”
We’re the recipient of the New England Board of Higher Education’s 2016 Maine State Merit Award for our Personalized Learning initiative. Our effort, with support from the Davis Educational Foundation, is transforming our curriculum to a more personalized approach to delivering instruction and assessing student learning.
Home for Scholars
We’re proud to be the home to a number of Mitchell Scholars and Gauvin Scholars (through the Aroostook Aspirations Initiative).
We’re the northernmost spot on the Langlais Art Trail. Our gift from the Kohler Foundation, Inc., of more than 800 art pieces by renowned artist Bernard “Blackie” Langlais, makes UMPI the premiere research facility for those who want to study Langlais’ artistic process.
