Maine State Forum: Public Interest Speaker Series

posted in: UMA News | 0

The University of Maine at Augusta and its Justice Studies Department have teamed up to offer a new speakers series on topics of interest to all Mainers. The series will offer Mainers opportunities to learn and interact with Maine policymakers in the news.

In September, we welcomed Dr. Richard Lumb, a nationally-recognized expert on personal resilience. On October 25th, our speakers will be Kennebec County Sheriff Ken Mason and Kennebec County District Attorney Maeghan Maloney who will be discussing the Co-Occurring Disorders and Veterans Court and answering audience questions on this topic. On November 29th, Warden Randall Liberty will be speaking on innovative correctional programs at the Maine State Prison. The series will continue on the last Wednesday of the month on the evenings of February 28, March 28, and April 25, 2018.

The Maine State Forum is held in Jewett Auditorium on UMA’s Augusta Campus at 6pm followed by a Q&A until 7:30pm. The series is always free and open to the public.
