Educational Partners

Not only do we want to offer students the services they deserve, we strive to make the most efficient use of Maine’s educational resources. That’s why we work with Maine Adult Education, Maine Department of Labor, Maine Community College System, New Ventures Maine, and many others to leverage educational services in our communities and state-wide.

The UMA Saco Center is fortunate to work closely with many community partners. Our partners enrich our community, Center and student experiences.

Our Partners

  • New Ventures Maine
    New Ventures Maine helps individuals recognize strengths, overcome barriers, find resources, develop a plan, take action towards their goals: start a business, find a career, return to school, build assets, be active in the community.
  • Maine Educational Opportunity Center (MEOC)
    MEOC is a federal education initiative established to promote access to post-secondary education for traditionally under-represented adult populations within the State of Maine. MEOC is committed to assist any adult wishing to re-enter a formal education setting. Funded to serve traditionally under-represented adults, the majority of MEOC participants are of the first generation in their families to go to college.
  • York County Senior College
    The Senior College exists not only to provide seniors of the county stimulating educational opportunity but also the chance to interact with their peers, in and out of the classroom.

Chamber and Local Community


Interactive Television (ITV) courses are broadcast live by faculty from university campuses to UMA Centers and sites across Maine.  Students view the class on TV monitors and interact with the instructor and other students using a toll-free classroom telephone.

ITV/Delayed Viewing Option: Delayed viewing allows students view their ITV course through a videostreaming option. This allows students to view their course on the computer using videostream technology. Classes are accessed via computer on BlackBoard or FirstClass. Faculty permission may be required for this option. To take exams, hand-in and collect assignments, use computers, and more, students would travel to their Site or Center.

Sites: Currently we have sites located Sanford and South Berwick. The South Berwick site offers ITV classes via delayed viewing only.
