At USM, we are wholly dedicated to creating opportunities that foster learning, achievement, and success. These opportunities may happen in the classroom, on the playing field, or in cyberspace. They may happen in the residence hall, the concert hall, or a laboratory. Wherever these moments of learning, achievement and success present themselves, they are opportunities for USM students.

Our students are critical thinkers, engaged community members, and citizens of the world. How do we know this? We see it every day when they seize the opportunity to articulate a new concept, volunteer at a school, or seek knowledge of another culture. These individual moments, in aggregate, are the “USM Experience.”
