USM Foundation Board of Directors
The USM Foundation Board of Directors is comprised of a group of community leaders, representing numerous businesses and industries from across the region. These committed volunteers, many of whom are alumni of USM or its predecessor schools, help advocate for the University and assist with our fundraising efforts in the community.
We are fortunate to have the help and support of these dedicated individuals as we continue to grow the Foundation and strive to achieve our strategic imperatives.
