University of Southern Maine

* The University of Southern Maine (USM) is focused on becoming widely recognized as Maines metropolitan university, known for providing students with a high-quality, accessible and affordable education complemented by real-world learning experiences that prepare them for life after graduation and, in turn, contribute to the regions economy and quality of life. These experiences, in the form of internships, service-learning courses, practica and community service projects, are all essential parts of the USM experience. With campuses in the economic and population centers of Portland, Gorham and Lewiston-Auburn, USM continues to build partnerships with businesses, non-profits and governmental organizations throughout the region. Members of the faculty support these efforts through their teaching, research, and creative activities, as well as their commitment to fostering a spirit of critical inquiry and civic participation. As a result, our students have the opportunity to explore career directions, develop global citizenship skills, give back to the community, and apply and explore personal and academic interests. * The USM Osher Map Library houses a world-class collection of maps and globes. * Strong Division III athletics are a pride of the University, and our scholar athletes distinguish themselves in the sports arena and in the classroom.
