For more than a century, the University of Maine at Presque Isle has been helping students find their path to great professional careers. We provide 1,500 traditional and non-traditional students with life-changing opportunities in a caring, small-university environment. One of seven autonomous campuses within the University of Maine System, UMPI combines liberal arts and selected professional programs and serves as a cultural and educational resource for the entire region. The University has adopted a learning focus that embraces the curriculum, student life, even the classrooms themselves. It’s called adventurous learning – intellectual, cultural, and outdoor adventure in an extraordinary natural and cultural environment. This kind of learning provides opportunities for personal discovery and individual adventure so that students develop the skills and self-confidence to succeed in life.
Our campus sits on 150 acres surrounded by the rolling hills and potato fields of northern Maine. The city of Presque Isle offers opportunities for both summer and winter outdoor sports and is the primary commercial center of the region. Combining clean air, clear skies, and safe small-town life next door to the Northern Maine Woods, it also boasts blue-ribbon schools, a regional airport, and easy access to nearby Canada.
Students come from all areas of Maine and the U.S., as well as several foreign countries including Canada, to complete their undergraduate and graduate work. The University strives to be the region’s premier learning institution while helping to stimulate cultural and economic development in Aroostook County and the State of Maine. The University serves as an educational and cultural center for the area and is host to many state and regional conferences. Its facilities are utilized for lectures, programs, concerts, dance performances, exhibits, and plays that benefit the entire region.
