University of Maine System | Orono, ME (04469)
Full Time

The University of Maine (UMaine) seeks an accomplished and energetic leader to serve as the

University’s 21st President, succeeding retiring President Susan J. Hunter.

The flagship campus of the University of Maine System, UMaine is a land and sea grant

university serving the state, nation and world through its research, teaching, and outreach

mission. Founded in 1865, the University has a rich history of providing premier educational

opportunities for the people of Maine and beyond at an affordable price. UMaine is the only

major research institution and the only Carnegie classified research university in the state. The

University serves more than 11,000 undergraduate and graduate students, employs 2,025 fulltime

faculty and staff, and offers the only Division I athletics program in Maine. Located in the

town of Orono, UMaine boasts a beautiful New England setting in the heart of the state with

endless opportunity to take advantage of pristine natural surroundings.

Reporting to the University of Maine System Chancellor, James H. Page, the President is the

executive officer of UMaine and the University of Maine at Machias (UMM), one of six other

institutions in the System. The President has nine direct reports, holds financial responsibility

for UMaine and UMM, and serves as the chief fundraiser for UMaine. The next President will

be an intellectual leader for UMaine and the state, and will lead a strategic planning process

that builds on the current Blue Sky Plan and identifies the next set of strategic priorities for

UMaine under the System’s One University initiative, creating greater collaboration between

the System’s seven institutions. S/he should possess demonstrated, successful executive-level

leadership experience, a clear appreciation for the mission of a land and sea grant public

research university, a deep commitment to collaborative leadership, and an entrepreneurial

spirit with a track record for bringing innovative solutions to complex challenges. This

presidency offers a truly exciting opportunity to lead a passionate learning community with

unwavering commitment to serving the people of Maine.
