In 1990, when the Edmund S. Muskie School of Public Service was named in his honor, Senator Edmund S. Muskie challenged students, faculty, and researchers to make a real difference in the lives of the people of Maine and the nation. Through its teaching, research and public service, the school is educating leaders, informing policy and practice, and strengthening civic life.

Muskie as exemplified in his long and distinguished career as a public servant for Maine and the nation.
