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.
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.
