Welcome to the website for the University of Maine at Machias! Whether you are a current or prospective student, a parent, an alum, a community member, or a stranger interested in learning more about Maine higher education, we are pleased to have you visit our site and learn a bit more than you knew before about this unique campus and the remarkable opportunities it offers.

UMM is a small, public liberal arts institution on the coast of Downeast Maine. We take full advantage of our beautiful location to provide experiential learning opportunities for our students in Marine Biology; Environmental Recreation and Tourism Management; Psychology and Community Studies; English, Creative Writing and Book Arts; and a variety of other exciting programs. Our interdisciplinary programs help students explore the rich relationships among liberal arts disciplines and prepare them for a lifetime of intellectual discovery and integrative thinking. Our classes, internships, and service-learning opportunities introduce our students to the human and natural environments of Downeast Maine and help them discover what they can learn from and contribute to both society and the environment here and around the globe.

If you would like to be part of an environmentally and socially conscious community of active learners where you will be encouraged to explore your passions and dreams, become a contributing member of a community committed to individual growth and mutual support, and set a life course that taps your talents and interests to make a difference in the world, then UMM may be the place for you!

We hope that you will explore our site, interact with members of our community electronically or face-to-face, and become a student or friend of the University of Maine at Machias!

Sincere best wishes,

Dr. Sue Huseman
Interim President
