Building Meaningful Connections

Our beautiful campuses are sites for learning and reflection that provide opportunities for collaboration among people, organizations, and communities worldwide. We build meaningful connections with individuals, businesses, other academic institutions, public and not-for-profit agencies, as well as with governmental and non-governmental organizations around the world. These relationships greatly increase the knowledge, expertise, and opportunities available to our students, faculty, professional staff, alumni, and community partners. Such connections enhance life-long learning, career and personal growth, and community contributions.  

  • Further explore and cultivate international relationships to build students’ global competency and cultural humility.
  • Encourage committed engagement with the communities around the UNE campuses in Maine, Morocco, and online.
  • Develop a comprehensive alumni engagement program.
  • Expand affiliations with other institutions of higher education to increase opportunities for research, student and faculty exchanges, and new and expanded academic programs.
