USM needs and deserves the best management team we can put together in this time of transformation in higher education, deep deficits and declining enrollments. We cannot afford business as usual. We need new thinking, relevant experience, high performance reputations, and rigorous intellect. We need people that can work together as a team and collaborate and consult openly both within the university and in the broader community.
The new President’s Council is comprised of highly talented and competent professionals who are committed to the hard work of transforming USM to ensure its future for the people of Maine. I am confident this team will adhere to the construct of servant leadership and will work fairly, transparently, and collaboratively, always with the University’s best interests in mind.
