As part of its ongoing commitment to build intellectual community, the University of Maine at Augusta holds regular Research in Progress (RiP) group meetings in which faculty and students with active research programs present projects, discuss methodologies and provide constructive critiques of one another’s work.

We encourage university members at all stages of the research process to join us and build capacity through the motivating force of peer review.  To find out more about presenting at or attending the RiP sessions at UMA, please contact Associate Professor Peter Milligan (p: 207-621-3228 | e:
