System-wide Effort to Streamline Course Offerings Led by UMF President Foster
Kathryn Foster, UMF president, will spearhead an effort to streamline course offerings at the University of Maine System’s seven campuses, according to an article in the Portland Press Herald. The new initiative is part of a broader five-year strategic plan approved by the UMS trustees at their last meeting and is an attempt to broaden course access and cut costs. “We will be taking a careful look at the academic menus across the campuses and see what the opportunities are to integrate,” said Foster. She was named the head of the committee after former chairwoman, Susan Hunter’s position changed from vice chancellor to interim president of University of Maine.
