Our partnerships with Maine’s higher education institutions run deep and the strong relationships we have intersect across all of Educate Maine’s programs. We intentionally work to support student aspirations, success, college and career preparation and career readiness with our higher education partners because that work is at the heart of our mission.
When strategically planning out our work for the year, we connect and collaborate with our higher education colleagues to make sure we are aligning events, networking opportunities, programming, and professional development. Our cooperation is firmly rooted in doing the best for students so they persist and complete their education and go on to be successful contributing members of Maine’s economy.
Our deliberate alignment of Educate Maine priorities with higher education initiatives is evident in Education Leaders Experience, Maine Career Catalyst, Maine Teacher of the Year, and Project>Login. Additionally, we often participate in policy and advocacy work together with our higher education partners. Making gains in educational attainment is a shared goal and directly tied to MaineSpark, of which we are all members.
We are grateful for the continued leadership and dedication of faculty, staff, and students at Husson University, Thomas College, University of New England, Maine's Community College System, and the University of Maine System campuses. Educate Maine is proud to partner with all of you!
