Abstract/ Summary

A scan of a document presented to the University of Maine Community by Frederick E. Hutchinson, President of the University of Maine from April 1, 1992 to June 30, 1997. A memo accompanying the report in 1993 explained, "The preliminary plan contained 70 proposed actions aimed at improving the quality of the University's programs and services and maximizing efficient use and management of our resources...Developing the Downsizing Plan has been a difficult challenge, one I did not anticipate when I accepted the Presidency last year. However, such changes are necessary to maintain the quality and efficiency of programs and services which our students, employees and the people of Maine expect. The plan may not be flawless. However, the plan does offer a foundation for the future, one which better positions us for enhanced, sustainable quality in a decade of limited resources, shifting demands and greater challenges."
