USM Gives Back

Students and alumni learning, engaging, and giving back to Maine communities.

Learning. Engaging. Giving Back. The USM Network at Work.

Our alumni are the leaders of non-profits and businesses. They are inventors, innovators and teachers. They are the foundation of the USM Network.

Carissa O'Brien

“I left USM equipped with the self-assurance to be bold in creating change and the maturity to be cognizant of my impact on others. It was the active learning and engagement at USM that not only accelerated my career, but allowed me to truly love what I do.” – Carissa O’Brien, Vice President, Loss Prevention, TD Bank, Class of 2007

Micky Collins

“USM gave me such a strong foundation. The professors there really pulled my potential out of me. A huge part of an undergraduate education is preparation for making good choices, and USM really prepared me to do that.” – Michael “Micky” Collins, PhD., University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Associate Professor—Department of Orthopaedic Surgery/Department of Neurological Surgery, Executive and Clinical Director—UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program, Class of 1992

Adinah Barnett

“I do the work that I do today—digitizing the historical collection for the Osher Map Library, and making these rare artifacts viewable around the world via our website—directly as a result of the support of the USM community. Students and faculty shared opportunities and resources here at the university that put me where I am today!" – Adinah Barnett, Digital Imaging Technician, Osher Map Library, Class of 2010
