Abstract/ Summary

The University of Maine’s strategic plan outlines goals for Research and Graduate Education. These goals include the enhancement of “our research capacity and output as measured in the core areas of research expenditures and private foundation funding” as well as the advancement of an “integrative model of excellence for graduate education in the 21st century”. Further, UMaine is called to “foster dynamic professional training and development activities through university-wide interdisciplinary research networks.” In March 2014, an Academic Affairs Forum focused on the opportunity to rethink our approach to accomplishing these goals under a proposed reorganization of Research and the Graduate School. At this forum, Vice President of Research and Dean of the Graduate School Carol Kim will provide an update on the progress made to date. Notable examples of the integration of Research and Graduate Education, collaborations created and enhanced, as well as opportunities for additional synergies to be achieved will be discussed. Finally, the Provost will provide an update on the UMS “One University for all of Maine” initiative, especially related to Academic Affairs.
