A Transformational Moment for Our University
In this time of rapid change, every one of us has an important part to play in lighting a pathway to a brighter future. At the University of New England, we feel an obligation to step up and meet the high stakes of this societal moment by addressing the big challenges on everybody’s mind — through bold initiatives and steady leadership.
Doing Our Part is a new comprehensive campaign that represents a profoundly transformational moment for our University. Through strategic, student-centric investments in our programs and campuses, this campaign will enable UNE to provide an unmatched educational experience. We will further our ability to empower UNE’s students, so they can realize their full potential and meet the challenges of the 21st century.
At UNE, we’re fortunate that a combination of history, foresight, valued partnerships, and the fact that we are a nimble institution, has left us poised to make a difference in this troubled world: our core strengths are perfectly aligned with the needs of this societal moment. We’ve come a long way in our 200-year journey to becoming Maine’s largest private university, always remaining focused on our mission and cognisant of the trust our community has placed in us. Now we must take this next step in our evolution, to empower our students to go out in the world and make multiple positive impacts. This world needs every single one of them, and every single one of us. There is no more urgent time for all of us to do our part.” — James D. Herbert, UNE President
