Greetings from Provost Gwendolyn Mahon
As UNE’s provost, my priorities center on academic excellence 和 student success. 学生 are at the heart of all we do — promoting their success in the classroom, 在实验室里, 在校园, through innovative experiential learning opportunities, 和, 最终, throughout their future as they leave UNE 和 become alumni. I regard the UNE experience as nothing short of transformational; students graduate as changed individuals, prepared for 和 excited about the next phase of their lives. 对我来说, the position of provost is all about supporting students as they undergo this transformation, 提供温暖的环境, 欢迎, 和 inclusive environment in which to do so.
一个完全 认证 机构,一个是 学者 prepare students to thrive in a rapidly changing world with a focus on improving the health of people 和 our planet. UNE is home to five different colleges, providing academic degrees that run the spectrum from the liberal arts to highly specialized professional offerings. Our many Centers 和 Institutes deliver innovative co-curricular programming 和 experiential learning opportunities that challenge students to tackle real-world problems. The result is an uncommonly rich 和 exciting educational experience.
Diversity, Equity, 和 Inclusion
提供温暖, 欢迎, 和 inclusive campus community has been an enduring tenet of UNE from its earliest days. 从我们的 historical roots grounded in providing educational opportunities to marginalized populations to the high percentage of first-generation college students among our community, 你可以说 一些 在我们的DNA里. Our 全球 Education Program offerings — from short-term travel courses to full semester abroad experiences at our beautiful campus in 丹吉尔、摩洛哥 — immerse students in rich cultural discovery leading to newfound personal 和 geographic connections.
UNE is a private institution with an impressive 研究和奖学金 相对于其大小的配置文件. As the university with the most NIH funding in the state of Maine 和 an R2 classification, UNE provides abundant opportunities for students to engage in research experiences. These opportunities extend to undergraduate 和 graduate students alike.
