USM Connects showcases the University of Southern Maine's engagement with our community. Inside this magazine you will find stories about the groundbreaking work of our students, alumni, faculty, and staff, as well as examples of powerful collaborations that USM is forging with local business and community partners.
USM Connects is published by the USM Foundation.
The theme of this USM Connects issue is partnership. And by that we mean the powerful, mutually beneficial relationships USM has forged with employers and organizations throughout Maine. Great partnerships are a win-win for everyone, as the pages of this magazine will bear out.
With this inaugural issue of USM Connects, we highlight the impact that USM students, alumni, faculty and staff are making in our region and beyond. Their energy, vision, creativity and leadership bring extraordinary value to our economy, our communities and our lives. This is what inspires us at the USM Foundation.
