The mission of the University of Maine at Augusta Senior College (UMASC) shall be to provide intellectually stimulating learning opportunities and special activities developed primarily for persons fifty (50) years of age or older and their spouses or partners. Educational offerings will be developed, coordinated and taught primarily by the members themselves with the cooperative sponsorship of the University of Maine at Augusta.
What does that mission statement mean to us?
- First, we are grateful for the support of the University which provides Senior College with office and classroom space, as well as support services.
- Second, we recognize the efforts of Senior College board members, faculty, and committee members who are all unpaid volunteers.
