Office of the President

Portland ConnectED

The University of Southern Maine joins Mayor Michael Brennan in a new education partnership intended to provide support from children, students and workers from "cradle-to-career"

"That partnership will lead to a multimillion-dollar endowment to help Portland students afford post-secondary education, Brennan said Friday.

Brennan said in a prepared statement that the partnership will connect the education, business, nonprofit, civic and philanthropic sectors. It will focus on strategies that he said are proven to work: early childhood education, kindergarten through 12th-grade literacy, and post-secondary training."
