July 2020 Alumni Update
In this month’s missive from a member of the University’s leadership team, Annual Giving and Alumni Relations Director Katie (Baum) O’Donnell looks back on the last few months of fundraising with immense gratitude.
While Ferro Alumni Center typically spends its spring months focused on travel, scholarships, special events, and the June Match Challenge, this time around, some things just couldn’t wait.
UMF invites three Black alumni — Starr Soul-McDonald ’10, Sebastian Jackson ’13, and Steffon Gales ’18 — to share their experiences and thoughts on race and racism in Maine and beyond.
When the COVID-19 pandemic sent most UMF students home, Katie Fournier ’01, UMF’s Center for Student Development Director, swiftly transitioned services to provide remotely-accessible mental health support.
After much deliberating and planning, Farmington will welcome students back in mid-August for a mix of in-person, hybrid and remote classes.
Make sure these alumni-authored titles are on your late-summer reading list.
