Abstract/ Summary

The Board of Trustees receives with appreciation the report of the UMA Name Change Working Group. Having concluded that the names suggested by the Working Group do not meet the criteria, the Board hereby directs the Chancellor to consult with the members of the Working Group and the President of the University of Maine at Augusta on continuing the process of identifying an appropriate name. In continuing this process, it should be understood that the Board has reached consensus that Maine State University, and any version thereof, is not an acceptable or appropriate option.
