Our goal is to assist UMA students as they explore and develop their potential. We collaborate with faculty and other members of the University community to create a supportive learning environment, advocate for students, and provide the services and opportunities that facilitate: a successful transition into college; an understanding of student rights, responsibilities, and privileges; intellectual and personal growth; the application of acquired knowledge to career development, personal effectiveness, and civic responsibilities; and, an appreciation for learning as a lifelong process.
