President’s Message

Rebecca Wyke
Dr. Rebecca M. Wyke

I want to welcome you to the University of Maine at Augusta! At UMA, we are proud of our long history of providing opportunities for members of our communities, all across Maine, to transform their lives through the power of higher education.

As the third largest university in the University of Maine System, UMA serves nearly 6,000 students at campuses in Augusta and Bangor, eight regional UMA Centers, and thirty-one course receive sites in virtually every corner of the state.

Our extraordinary faculty and staff provide a quality educational experience for our students. UMA has a tradition of meeting students where they are and on their schedule, offering classes onsite, online, through video conference, Interactive Television, and at UMA Centers.

Financial support is available to our Pell eligible students through the Pine Tree State Pledge. This zero tuition pledge removes the financial barrier to completing a degree for many students. Scholarship opportunities are also available and our financial aid staff is ready to review these options with you.

I look forward to welcoming you to the UMA Moose family!

Best regards,

Rebecca M. Wyke


The President’s Office is located in the Alumni Center on the Augusta campus.
