University of Southern Maine (USM) President Glenn Cummings announced today that University Credit Union (UCU) is the 2020 recipient of the USM Exceptional Community Partner Award. The annual award honors an employer partner or organization that has gone above and beyond to support the University and its mission of academic excellence and accessibility. UCU has deep roots in higher education, providing dedicated support to Maine’s public universities for more than 50 years.
“As USM’s longtime partner, UCU has championed our students’ aspirations in the classroom and on the athletic fields, and are strongly committed to the well-being of our campus communities," said Cummings. "Recently, they made a donation to our critically needed Student Emergency Fund to help our students meet the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are proud to honor them with the 2020 Exceptional Community Partner Award.”
