Give to USM

Since 1878, generations of Huskies — students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends — have invested in the University of Southern Maine (USM) and all it stands for. USM students are trailblazers, often the first to go to college, determined, and resilient. Help keep that momentum alive by investing in their future!

USM alumni have stayed connected to their alma mater for over a century. From the very first graduate in 1878 to a network of over 58,000 graduates today, we are proud of our alumni who live, work, and contribute in every state across the nation, and in numerous countries around the world.
