MACHIAS, Maine – The Psychology and Community Studies program at the University of Maine at Machias was recently selected as a recipient of the President’s Campus Leadership Award from Maine Campus Compact. The award was presented at MCC’s annual awards ceremony in April.
Nominated by UMM President Cynthia Huggins, the Psychology and Community Studies program was selected as a recipient of the award for its contributions to community service, service learning, and civic engagement on the UMM campus.
