About Us

Our Vision 

We Acknowledge that:

  1. Intellectual stimulation is essential to the vital trilogy of MIND, BODY, and SPIRIT.
  2. More than 3,000 seniors reside in the central Maine area, and Maine seeks to become an attractive retirement state.

We seek to:

  1. Remain a part of the University of Maine at Augusta as a self-governing and self-sustaining college which initiates, prepares, promotes, presents, and evaluates courses.
  2. Operate under the UMASC Board of Directors and through a structure of functional committees.
  3. Reach out and appeal to the growing senior population.
  4. Be accessible financially and physically to all seniors who wish to attend.
  5. Provide scholarships so that inability to pay is no barrier to participation.
  6. Offer a wide variety of academically oriented courses and special activities reflecting the interests of its students.
  7. Conduct classes on the campus and other approved facilities in the area.
  8. Insure appropriate staffing, mainly through volunteers, for all activities.
  9. Through service, learning, and outreach, enhance the overall quality of life for a wide range of people.
