Higher Education

Dear Higher Education Employees,

As you prepare to step on to campuses across our great state, I want to congratulate you on your amazing successes! Our students who graduate from Maine’s public colleges and universities are achieving great things and that is, in part, due to you—the hard working educators who keep campuses running. You are truly the backbone of Maine’s higher education system and for that I want to thank you.

Your enthusiasm for learning and your passion for your students make you a wonderful addition to schools across the state. I want to let you know there are thousands of members of the Maine Education Association who are here to help you along the way, both in and out of the classroom.
