Abstract/ Summary

Honoring Harold Alfond’s legacy of support for Maine education and athletics, University of Maine President Joan Ferrini-Mundy and Athletic Director Ken Ralph detail $110 million plan.

The University of Maine has unveiled its transformative $110 million athletic facilities master plan. The initiative honors Harold Alfond’s legacy of support for Maine education and athletics by providing modern facilities for all 17 varsity programs at Maine’s only Division I athletic program, and improving the overall UMaine student experience.

In October, the Harold Alfond Foundation announced an historic $500 million investment in Maine and its people. The University of Maine System is to receive $240 million over 10-12 years, including $90 million in support for UMaine’s $110million Athletics Facilities Master Plan.

“Harold Alfond believed in the University of Maine, its students, and the impact of athletics,” said Greg Powell, Chair of the Harold Alfond Foundation. “He would be very supportive of the direction and current leadership at the university. We are proud to continue his legacy of giving to projects that benefit Maine’s universities and its people.”
